OKLAHOMA CITY -- A former Marine faces six counts of first-degree murder in the fatal shootings of four people whose bodies were found inside a burning house.

Prosecutors accused David Allen Tyner on Friday of shooting, stabbing and then burning Brooke Phillips, Jennifer Ermey, Milagrous Barrera and Mark Barrientos on Nov. 9. Because Phillips and Barrera were pregnant, two more murder counts were filed.

Phillips was a prostitute who was featured on the HBO reality series "Cathouse."

According to a police affidavit, a witness who was inside the residence that day told police that a person known as "Hooligan" was arguing with one of the victims when the shootings occurred. The witness ran away.

Investigators said "Hooligan" was later identified as Tyner.

According to new court records just filed Friday, all four of the victims were shot and stabbed before being set on fire.

An attorney for Tyner couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
