SCHULTER, Oklahoma -- The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has arrested the step-daughter of a man found dead, but is still looking for a second suspect in a Halloween homicide near Schulter.

A family member found Timothy Parenti, 57, dead on Monday, October 31, at his partially burned home in Okmulgee County. Parenti's body sustained some burns but it's not known how he died. The State Medical Examiner's Office is trying to determine the cause of death.

Tuesday night, OSBI agents arrested Parenti's step-daughter, 26-year-old Christina Stribel, as she dropped off her children at the home of her ex-in-laws in Tuttle. She's a suspect in her step-father's death, but investigators aren't releasing a possible motive.

OSBI agents also tried to arrest Dustin Martin. He was with Stribel when she arrived at the house in Tuttle, but he managed to run away. Agents spent all night searching the area. They searched on foot, used infrared cameras, and even put up OSBI's airplane to search the area.

The search eventually moved into the Mustang area, but agents called it off 5 a.m. when there was still no sign of Martin.

Anyone with information about Martin's whereabouts or the homicide investigation is asked to call the Okmulgee County Sheriff's Office at (918) 756-4311.
