OKLAHOMA CITY -

New details released in the stabbing death at an Oklahoma City night club. A deadly fight broke out at "The Office" near NW 63rd and May Ave. on March 2. Now, Court documents link that murder investigation to a second possible homicide.

Search warrants reveal the connection between three different crimes scenes; the deadly stabbing, a body inside a burned out car and an intentionally set fire. 

Raheem Murphy was stabbed to death in a fight following a separate incident between two women inside the nightclub on March 2. Court records reveal one of the women involved told investigators "she felt like it was her fault" Murphy was stabbed and killed.   

Two hours later, police were called to the Willow Cliff Apartments for gunshots in the area where Murphy's family lived. A few hours later, Police were called back to that same apartment complex to find a body inside a burned out car.

Court Records show the car was registered to the woman who felt responsible for Murphy's death and she hasn't been seen since. Investigators say they later found "six spent small caliber casings" near the apartment where Murphy's family lived. 

By the evening of March 3, police had been called back to the family's apartment for an intentionally set fire. Court records show investigators found "several areas in the carpet that appear to be blood stains" and the "carpet cut out and removed."   

Investigators believe the family "set fire to destroy possible evidence" for the murder of the woman who felt responsible for the stabbing and killing of Murphy.

Police are still waiting for the medical examiner to officially identify the body found in the burned out car. No arrests have been made in that case. Prosecutors did file murder charges on Ricky Cooper for the stabbing death of Murphy at the nightclub.
