A Tulsa police detective says a former newspaper carrier charged with killing two elderly women told investigators he thought the two “had lived long enough.”
Detective Eddie Majors testified during a preliminary hearing for former Tulsa World newspaper carrier Paul Williford.
Williford is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of
75-year-old Geraldine Lawhorn and 73-year-old Donna Jo Stauffer. Both women lived on Williford’s delivery route.
Majors says Williford indicated he chose his victims because he considered them old.
Williford is already serving life in prison for attacking a third woman on his route. That victim survived and after Williford’s arrest he told police he had killed Lawhorn and Stauffer.
