LOGAN COUNTY, Oklahoma -

New, disturbing details have emerged about the murder of a Blanchard man.

Shawn Masters' body was found bound and burned in a Logan County field in January. Authorities arrested three people in connection with his death Wednesday night.

According to court documents just released Thursday afternoon, one of the suspects admits she witnessed two men beat Shawn Masters with a baseball bat and that they then threw his body into a trash can. But she says he was alive when they did it.

That suspect is 35-year-old Brandy Katheryn Hanson of McAlester, Okla. She along with 50-year-old Johnny Dean Snow of McAlester and 24-year-old Angel Eva Munoz of Oklahoma City were arrested Wednesday night, two days after authorities released the identity and picture of Shawn Masters and asked the public for help.

"These three people were involved with the individual just prior to his death and that's what led us to them," said Sgt. David Hynd with the Logan County Sheriff's office.

Thursday afternoon, inside the Logan County courthouse, a judge formally arraigned Snow in connection with the murder. According to court documents Snow admitted he, Hanson, and Munoz drove a U-Haul truck to an open field in Guthrie, and then said the three of them drug the trash can out of the truck and that Hansen set the trash can on fire.

Those same court documents state Hanson admitted she met Masters, who she knew as "Slim" at the beginning of the year, and that he started hanging out with her and Munoz and that they had all become friends. Friends of Masters confirm Hanson was one of the last people to be seen with Masters before he died.

Hanson claims they were hanging out at Munoz home in southwest Oklahoma City with Masters, when two men arrived and went inside a bedroom with Munoz and closed the door.

Hanson then said the two men came out and started beating Masters and told her to tie Masters' hands behind his back with zip ties. Those court documents state she did, and then says she witnessed the two men and Munoz taking turns beating Masters. But she claimed she knew Masters was still alive, because she could hear him moaning.

That's when Hanson claims Munoz began using several different knives to stab Masters while he was inside the trash can.

"Hopefully over the course of the next up and coming days we can identify the actual validity of those statements and whether they were involved and to the extent that they were involved," said Hynd.

Court documents claim Hanson said Munoz even used some type of thin cord to strangle Masters, but it broke. They also state Hanson said Masters didn't deserve what happened to him and that she only went along with it because she was scared.

Right now, Snow, Hanson and Munoz are all being held at the Logan county detention center without bond. All three have several been in trouble with the law before on drug related charges.
