Murder charge filed in Moore stabbing

A first-degree murder charge was filed Thursday in Cleveland County District Court against an Oklahoma City man, accused of stabbing another man to death with a screwdriver early Wednesday in Moore.

Jeffrey Jon Weaver, 18, was charged with first-degree murder in the stabbing death of Gregory Lee Lutts, 40, Moore.

According to Moore Police Sgt. Todd Strickland, Lutts was discovered about 2 a.m. Wednesday lying across the street from his house at 300 Pauline Renee. He'd awakened neighbors while yelling for help, police said.

Weaver allegedly told police he'd taken methamphetamine to the victim's residence, and both had injected the drug. Weaver told police Lutts was "making sexual advances and shot him up with ice."

Weaver said he left the residence and was struck by an object Lutts had in his hands. Weaver said Lutts "backed off" and Weaver took a screwdriver out of his pocket and struck Lutts several times in the face and chest. Lutts was dead at the scene, upon officers' arrival.

Police arrested Weaver after he reportedly went down the block and asked residents for a ride to leave the area. Officers responded and after a brief chase and scuffle, took Weaver into custody.

Other felonies filed Thursday include:

· Patrick Littlebear, 45, Noble, unlawful possession of marijuana;

· Craig Wesley Christian, 33, Noble, leaving the scene of an accident with personal injury;

· Harrison Blake Calaway, 25, Norman, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous drug;

· Bradley Nolan Nutty, 25, Norman, operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol;

· Mitchell Alan McMahan, 50, Lexington, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous drug;

· Luis Angel Gonzales, 22, Moore, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous drug.
