The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says it will seek the death penalty after charging a man in the deaths of two Weleetka girls killed in 2008. Prosecutors have charged Henryetta resident Kevin Sweat with the murders of Skyla Whitaker and Taylor Paschal Placker.

The OSBI still needs help tracking down one of the guns used to kill the girls, a .40 caliber Glock model 22 with serial number EKG463US.

Agents say Sweat may have tried to sell it at a Tulsa gun show back in March. There's a $5,000 dollar reward if you find the gun.

The OSBI is also looking for the .22 caliber handgun. The Bureau doesn't know its serial number, and since it's a much more common type of firearm, tracking it down will probably be more difficult than finding the Glock.
