ARDMORE, Okla. -- More than four years after Ella Loftis was shot and killed while sitting on her front porch, police have a suspect in custody.

Ardmore police said 26-year-old Stephen Tanner Vineyard is accused in connection with the June 2014 murder of Loftis at her home in the 900 block of A Street NW.

Police are still looking for Marquis Walters, Isaac Lee, and Juaren McGee, all of Ardmore.

Vineyard was booked at the Pontotoc County Jail without bail. He was scheduled to be transferred to the Carter County Jail.

In 2016, Ricky McGee pleaded guilty in connection with the murder of Ella Loftis. He was said to be part of a notorious crime gang.
