VINITA, Okla. (AP) – Court paperwork shows immunity has been offered to a man charged with murder in the 1999 deaths of a northeast Oklahoma couple and the presumed deaths of the couple’s teenage daughter and her friend.

The June 14 filing says 67-year-old Ronnie Dean Busick was offered immunity in exchange for information in the case but that he isn’t competent to detail his involvement of two men who are now dead.

Defense Attorney Gregg Graves and Craig County District Attorney spokeswoman Michelle Lowry declined comment June 21.

Busick’s case was continued pending a mental evaluation.

Busick was charged in 201 8 in the Dec. 30, 1999, deaths of Danny Freeman and his wife Kathy Freeman, whose bodies were found in their burning home near the Kansas border, and the disappearances of their 16-year-old daughter, Ashley Freeman, and her 16-year-old friend, Lauria Bible, who was a Cherokee Nation citizen.
