The probable cause affidavit for the suspect in a double homicide in Skiatook gives an idea about the motive behind the stabbing deaths.
Michael Stanley is charged with first degree murder for the deaths of Esther Driskell in Tulsa County and Larisa Fraley in Osage County. The victims are his grandmother and sister.
According to the affidavit Stanley admitted to police he stabbed his grandmother with a paring knife from the kitchen of her home because she had ‘been on him about things’ and asked him to do the dishes.
He told police his sister, Fraley, was there when it happened and left with him, but tried to convince him to call the police so he later stabbed her and left her in the Driskell’s van, which they had taken after her death.
He told police he used the same knife in both homicides and threw it into the woods after leaving the van.
