A suspect in a quadruple homicide Sunday night at a Lacey area marijuana grow facility was arrested just before 4 p.m. in Miami Beach, Fla., the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation announced.

UPDATE: (11/21/22 5:05 p.m.) The suspect had not been apprehended by 5 p.m. Monday, but Sheriff Dennis Banther said “I'm certain he isn’t in our area, though.” Authorities still have not publically identified the suspect named in the arrest warrant, other than to say that he's an Asian male. 

The surviving victim of a Nov. 20 quadruple homicide at a Kingfisher County marijuana grow facility was discharged from the hospital and transfered yesterday to the Kingfisher County Criminal Justice Center to face felony charges of his own, Sheriff Dennis Banther said.
