A man wanted in connection with a murder at 56th and Hardesty in late September has been arrested in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Dairian E. Stanley, 20, is charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Torrence Evans on Sept. 25, a day before Evans' 26th birthday.

According to court documents, Stanley accused an ex-girlfriend of having an affair with Evans and forced her at gunpoint to drive to Evans' home near 56th and Hardesty.

Stanley reportedly told the woman, "If I can't have you, can't nobody have you. (sic) As a matter of fact, you're gonna watch me kill him, and then I'm gonna kill you." 

When the pair arrived at the home, Evans met them outside. That's when Stanley shot at Evans several times and then drove off, according to court documents. 

First responders later found Evans and transported him to an area hospital where he later died. 

During the investigation, Stanley's mother was interviewed. She told police her son had called her and told her he messed up and his life was over. He also told her he shot someone, according to court documents. 

Prosecutors have requested a $500,000 bond. Stanley is currently in jail in Tulsa.
