They’re two men notorious for violent crime and connected to the murder-for-hire case of Tulsa businessman Neal Sweeney.
Now they’re names have surfaced in connection with an unsolved murder.
Court records show DNA from Alonzo Johnson, 39, has not been excluded from the investigation into a 2008 execution-style killing.
Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office investigators are waiting on DNA from Allen Shields, 34.
FOX23’s Abbie Alford explains this murder case and the duo’s criminal history.
Court records show evidence on the zip ties used to bound a man and his girlfriend in could connect Johnson and Shields’ to the man’s murder.
Just after on April 21st, 2008, two masked men forced their way into a West Tulsa home.
"They mentioned some guys came with some masks and did all of that stuff," says new tenant William Toney.
The intruders tied up Fredrick Wilson and his girlfriend over an argument involving drug money that ended with Wilson getting shot to death.
"When my wife found out about it I was like my boss just told me the same thing,” says Toney.
The father says he moved her with his family a little over a year ago and has nothing to do with the crime but says it creeps him out bit.
"My thing is the safety for my family," says Toney.
Now two suspects who have made on FOX23 News before are Alonzo Johnson and Allen Shields.
A search warrant for Shields’ DNA says it has not excluded Johnson’s DNA who is a convicted felon.
The names might be familiar because prosecutors say the pair who are cousins worked with three others to help carry out the murder-for-hire of Tulsa businessman Neal Sweeney in September 2008.
Records Shields’ brother Fred Shields and Terrico Bethel were excluded from the DNA evidence left in the Wilson murder. Those two are charged in the Sweeney murder.
Allen Shields is now a state’s witness and faces no prison time for his testimony against the other murder-for-hire suspects.
Johnson is awaiting the Sweeney trial in jail while Shields’ is out on bond waiting to take the stand.
Records show Johnson is charged in an Osage County murder and is named in plot to try to kill Tulsa County District Attorney Tim Harris.
Records show Allen Shields has bonded out of jail four times since Febrary 2010 and has posted more than one million dollars in bonds. Police say he has been arrested nearly 100 times and has never served a day in prison.
Tim Harris’ office says because of the evidence they declined to comment on the case. They also would not reveal the details of Shield’s plea agreement. Shields' sentencing has been postponed several times. Previous reports show Shields’ must tell the truth on the stand to receive a 10-year-suspended sentence for the Sweeney murder, trafficking drugs and assault and battery in a kidnapping case involving an ex-girlfriend.
The Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the case and no one has been arrested in the Wilson murder.
