TULSA, Okla. - A Tulsa police officer has been charged with first-degree murder in the off-duty shooting death of his daughter's boyfriend earlier this month.

Tulsa prosecutors formally charged Shannon Kepler Monday with the Aug. 5 killing of 19-year-old Jeremey Lake. Kepler was also charged with one count of shooting with intent to kill because prosecutors say he shot at his daughter during an alleged confrontation in which Lake was killed.

Kepler's wife, Gina Kepler, was not charged Monday because prosecutors said there wasn't evidence to support it. She'd been arrested along with her husband on a complaint of being an accessory after the fact of murder.

Shannon Kepler's defense attorney said he would save his comments on the charges for Tuesday, when his client is scheduled to be arraigned in district court.
