Man arrested in Florida over killings at Oklahoma marijuana farm

A suspect was arrested in Florida after four Chinese nationals were killed at a marijuana farm in Oklahoma, the Oklahoma state bureau of investigation said.

In a statement on Facebook, the bureau said the suspect, Wu Chen, 45, was arrested by police in Miami Beach after a car tag reader flagged the vehicle he was driving. Chen was then transported to the Miami-Dade county detention center.

Now awaiting extradition to Oklahoma, Chen will face charges of murder and shooting with intent to kill. A photograph released by Oklahoma authorities showed him sitting shoeless on a curb with his hands apparently cuffed behind his back.

An Oklahoma state bureau of investigation captain, Stan Florence, said authorities believed the suspect knew the victims.

Mark Woodward, a spokesperson for the Oklahoma bureau of narcotics and dangerous drugs control, told the Associated Press it was too early to declare that illegal marijuana growth and trafficking would be a centerpiece of the investigation.

Oklahoma legalized medical marijuana in 2018. Next year, voters will decide whether to legalize the recreational use of the drug.
