The U.S. Department of Justice announced a second, superseding indictment against two men accused of murdering 2 people in Haikey Creek Park in Broken Arrow nearly a year ago.

Denim Lee Blount and Hunter Hobbs are facing an additional charge of obstruction of justice by allegedly killing the victims to prevent them from identifying the men to authorities.

Prosecutors say that Hobbs, 20, of Bixby and Blount, 19, of Tulsa approached a man at 10:29 p.m. on May 8, 2021 as he was attempting to hook up his SUV and trailer in an apartment complex parking lot.

Based on surveillance footage, Blount pointed a shotgun at the man, while Hobbs pointed a rifle at him.

The two ordered the victim to get out of his vehicle, and when the victim refused both men allegedly shot him multiple times, prosecutors allege. The two then fled, leaving the victim and his vehicle behind.

The victim was transported to St. Francis Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Hobbs and Blount are also charged with conspiring to carry, use, and brandish firearms during a robbery in the early morning hours of May 13, 2021, at Haikey Creek Park in Broken Arrow.

During the robbery, the two allegedly shot and killed Caleb Vaughn Collier and Kelly Ray Olen John Landsaw-Davis before fleeing the scene in Collier’s stolen vehicle.

The full list of charges Hobbs and Blount are facing include:

  • conspiracy to carry, use and brandish a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence (counts 1 and 4);
    • attempted carjacking (count 2); carrying, using, brandishing and discharging a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence (count 3);
    • robbery in Indian Country (count 5);
    • felony murder in Indian Country (count 6);
    • causing death by carrying, using and discharging a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence (count 7), and
    • obstruction of justice by killing a victim (count 8).
