Three people were arrested for aiding an Oklahoma man who attempted to behead two people



UPDATE: Nov. 1, 2016, 3:29 p.m.

Authorities have arrested three people who allegedly helped Michael Vance, who carried out a deadly rampage last week. 

Danny Roach, April Marie Harden and Reginald Moore are accused of helping Vance as police were searching for him.  

According to CNN, all three face two counts of accessory to murder. 

Roach reportedly told police that he gave Vance bandages to treat his wounds and gave him ammunition. 

Police affidavits obtained by CNN show that Harden provided those bandages. In addition, she and Roach called Moore to see if they could give Vance and AK-47. 

Roach and Moore also face two counts of shooting with intent to kill. 


Michael Dale Vance Jr., the target of a police manhunt, was shot and killed by police, officials said on Sunday. 

He had been sought by law enforcement since Oct. 23. He was found in Leedey, Okla., nearly 100 miles from where the manhunt started in Wellston. 


A manhunt is underway for an Oklahoma man who went on a violent rampage that included shooting six people, a series of armed car thefts and killing his aunt and uncle, allegedly trying to decapitate them.

Authorities say Vance was last seen early Monday morning about 30 miles from the Texas border and 165 miles from where the initial manhunt began Sunday night.  

Authorities told ABC News Vance live-streamed two of his escapes on Facebook, one from inside a regular vehicle and the second from inside a police cruiser he stole. He stole the vehicle after shooting and wounding two police officers Sunday evening in Wellston, Oklahoma.

These are the two officers he shot.

As he was fleeing, Vance said in the video that things were "going to be intense," according to the affidavit released Monday night. 

"Letting y'all know, look, this is real," he said in one of the videos, according to the Associated Press. "If you want to know what's up next, stay tuned to your local news."

After escaping, police say Vance  Vance went to mobile home park, shot a woman and stole her vehicle. 

Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office spokesman Mark Opgrande said Vance then traveled 8 miles to the mobile home park where his aunt and uncle lived.

Oklahoma County Sheriff's Deputy Michael Belanger wrote in an affidavit that 55-year-old Ronald Everett Wilkson had been shot and had stab wounds on his neck "consistent with an attempt to sever his head." Valerie Kay Wilkson had similar neck wounds, according to the affidavit.
