    STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Prosecutors in Payne County have charged a 21-year-old man with first-degree murder in the killing of a teen who was nearly decapitated. Isaiah Marin of Stillwater was charged Thursday in the attack that killed 19-year-old Jacob Andrew Crockett a day earlier. Police say Marin was arrested Wednesday afternoon after someone saw him walking down the street carrying a large knife. Stillwater police say in an affidavit that Crockett had multiple stab wounds and that his head was "mostly severed" from his body. According to the affidavit, a witness told police that Marin and Crockett previously had disagreements because Crockett allegedly practiced witchcraft and Marin "had strong Christian beliefs." Crockett was the son of an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper. Marin remains in the Payne County jail.

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Many Oklahomans will see a fee increase of about 30 cents on their phone bill to help pay for Internet in schools. The state's corporation commission approved the increase Thursday for the Oklahoma Universal Service Fund, which also helps provide online access for hospitals and libraries. Phone companies pay the fees, but they are passed onto their customers on their bills. The Oklahoman reports the commission's 3-0 vote comes as the fund risked facing a shortfall after November. It needs about $50 million this year. The fund also pays for other programs, including Lifeline service for low-income households. In May, the commission voted 2-1 to delay the fee increase.

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Laws to expand gun rights, help combat domestic violence and expand the punishment for human trafficking in Oklahoma are about to go into effect. They are among about 250 laws approved by the Oklahoma Legislature and signed by Gov. Mary Fallin this year that go into effect on Nov. 1. One measure makes it lawful for a person who is licensed to carry a handgun to store it out of view in a locked vehicle when the vehicle is left unattended on school property. Another creates a new procedure for law enforcement authorities who respond to domestic violence situations to assess the victim's level of physical danger. And a measure involving human trafficking requires that perpetrators serve at least 85 percent of their sentences upon conviction.
