OK- Suicide suspected by a Durant man accused of sex crimes

6-10-2005 Oklahoma:

DURANT, Okla. (AP) Suicide is suspected in the death of a man accused of child sex crimes along with the former mayor of Achille.

58-year-old Kennith McKinney was found dead Thursday, apparently after shooting a relative. McKinney's body was found by Bryan County Sheriff Bill Sturch.

Sturch says he was coming around the front of the house and saw legs on the ground. Sturch says McKinney terminated his own life.

Sturch says McKinney apparently shot his stepson in the face and abdomen. The stepson survived.

McKinney was friends with John Wigington, Achille's former mayor. The two were accused of molesting four children.

Court records show Wigington is charged with second-degree rape and forcible sodomy. He told authorities Thursday he's willing to turn himself in on Monday. ..more.. by News6OK
