The Oklahoma man allegedly participated in the plan before the murder for truck parts

GLENCOE — An auto mechanic has been charged with first-degree murder after the body of a missing person was found on rural property to which he had access, court records show.

Christopher Michael Sommers, 21, was charged Thursday in Payne County District Court in the death of Samuel Kidd Crawford. An arrest affidavit said Crawford’s body was found in a “secret grave” along with parts of his truck on property owned by Somers’ employer.

Somers is accused of killing Crawford, 21, to sell parts for his truck, according to an affidavit from an Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation special agent. Somers’ acquaintances told investigators that Somers told them he was paid by someone in Cushing to kill people, and a few days before Crawford’s disappearance he talked about killing Crawford for his truck.
