Manuel Quezada, 47, and his wife Angelica Quezada had been arrested on Tuesday evening following the shooting outdoors their house in Owasso, Oklahoma.

The victims had been going to see a film when they had been killed. Family members members inform News On six that Albert never ever met Manuel Quezada. “Albert had never ever even met the man. [Manuel Quezada] would generally inform her that he did not want her becoming about black folks,” stated Aleta Thomas, aunt of Albert Thomas. “He never ever met the dad till final evening, and this man killed him in cold blood.”
According to public records obtained by the DailyMail.com, the Quezadas have a 27-year-old daughter and two sons, ages 28 and 32. Thomas and his girlfriend had dated for two years, according to his household.
Thomas’s mother designed a GoFundMe web page on Wednesday to raise funds for his funeral. Mates and household of the two males paid tribute to them on social media on Wednesday.
