BRISTOW, Okla. - Friday night in Creek County, the District Attorney's Office was hard at work investigating a double stabbing that happened in Bristow. 

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation was called to assist in that double stabbing investigation, Friday. 

The stabbing took place at 525 E. Washington in Bristow.  

That's where Vernon Stanbrough stabbed Betty Diane Evans and her brother, Robert Evans, at Betty's home. 

Betty was able to be transported to the hospital but later died in her hospital room. 

Betty Evans was 51 years old.

Robert Evans was flown to a Tulsa hospital where he is still in critical condition.

It's become evident that criminals don't need guns to ply their grisly trade.

2 ambulances and several police cars surrounded the corner of Washington and Oak street in Bristow. This caused much concern among the neighbors and those visiting the Bookout Restaurant for a Valentines dinner. My husband I were on our way to share dinner and witnessed the flashing lights and we highly concern. We have noticed the erosion of various community areas where there are known and prior convicted drug offenders which makes living near these known offenders a safety issue. Could there be legislation to register known drug offenders, like there is for sex offenders? Denise Ashley Bristow
