reported events that occurred at 502 South Yorktown Avenue on February 22nd, 2003

Around 3:10 a.m., February 22, 2003, 24 year old Kenneth Maxwell reported seeing a house on fire at 502 S. Yorktown in Tulsa. The 911 tape of Maxwell's call recorded his brief encounter with an unidentified male right before the line went dead. Tulsa firemen arrived at the burning residence four minutes later. Kenneth Maxwell's Nissan Altima blocked the road in front of the house. Fireman Justin Buthod tried to rouse the driver, assuming that he had passed out drunk at the wheel. Maxwell never responded, because he had been fatally shot in the back of the head. Inside the residence, firemen found a man later identified as 50 year old Fred Barney on his back in a pool of blood, partially covered with a floor rug. Fire blazed in the kitchen, where a stove had been pulled from the wall; its gas line compromised and ignited. Firemen shut off the gas and quelled the flames. They left the house to preserve the crime scene. During a further sweep for others who might be injured, they found 42 year old Rebecca Barney, nude and lying on a bed, her face covered with pillows. She was critically injured by a gunshot to the head. Investigators later observed blood stains and bullet holes in the pillows. Fred Barney was dead at the scene. Rebecca Barney and Kenneth Maxwell died without ever regaining consciousness. Through investigation, police arrested James Kidwell, 31. Kidwell and Rebecca Barney had been chatting romantically online, as Rebecca was in the middle of divorcing her husband Fred. However, Rebecca declined Kidwell's advances, leading him to go to the house of Rebecca and Fred. Kidwell broke in and shot and killed both Rebecca Barney and Fred Barney. Kidwell then set the house on fire, leaving shortly after. As he was leaving, he noticed Kenneth Maxwell's car stopped in the middle of the road, as he was calling 911 to report the fire. Kidwell then shot and killed Maxwell. James Kidwell was charged with three counts of first degree murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole.
