OSBI Helps Investigate McCurtain  Co. Murder


The McCurtain County Sheriff’s Office requested OSBI assistance in an early morning murder in Valliant.  Forty-four-year-old Lyn Loving was found shot to death inside her home early this morning after law enforcement was notified of her death.  The woman’s adopted son and his friend have been arrested for first degree murder.

Fourteen-year-old Cole Dalton Grable, Loving’s son, and 15-year-old Jonathan Skyler Brown were arrested at the Broken Bow Police Department this morning after an interview with officials. The two have been booked into the McCurtain County Jail.

Agents believe Loving was shot one time inside her home between 1 and 1:30 Thursday morning.  The two suspects left the home and drove to a relative’s house in Broken Bow where they told others that Loving had been shot.   Those relatives notified officials.
