New details in daycare decapitations

Oklahoma City, OK (KFOR) An Oklahoma City man has been arrested after two bodies were discovered inside an in-home daycare where children were still present.

Officers were called to the home Tuesday afternoon for a welfare check. When police arrived, they found 20-year-old Quinton Dashawn Laster outside of the home.

As they made their way inside, they found the bodies of 78-year-old James Earl Reed and 59-year-old Sharon Reed.

According to officials with the Oklahoma City Police Department, the victims had been shot and decapitated.

"It’s just a shock," said Sharon’s sister, Brenda Jackson. "Said their heads was almost cut off. And, they were stabbed. And, then, they were shot."

Officials said Laster is the grandson of Sharon.

Jackson said Laster has no history of mental illness but does have a history of abusing drugs.

"I really think he must’ve been high on something," Jackson said.
