TULSA, OK (KTRK) -- A man and woman from Houston are now facing first-degree murder charges in Oklahoma.

Alejandro Guzman, 20, and Jennifer Lopez, 18, are charged in the death of a 30-year-old Hispanic man who was found dead in Tulsa's Mohawk Park last Wednesday.

Tulsa Police say the murder investigation is related to the robbery on October 11 at an apartment complex, where Guzman allegedly shot another man.

The next day, police say, Guzman and others kidnapped a man, took him to the park and shot and killed him as part of a dispute over a stolen truck.

Police say the suspects in this case may be tied to other crimes, including a carjacking and a restaurant robbery.
