Jerrod Murray, 18, of Asher was charged last week with first-degree murder in the slaying of Generro Sanchez, The Oklahoman reported. Murray allegedly shot Sanchez after offering him $20 to drive him to a Walmart.
Evan Jolliff, who lives in the same freshman dorm at East Central University in Ada as Sanchez and his accused killer, told the newspaper Murray had also asked him for a ride to Walmart. Jolliff, who shared a suite with Murray and other students, said Murray usually wore a dark suit and used a cane.
"He just didn't seem right," Jolliff said. "But I didn't ever really want to say that ... didn't really want to judge him ... just because he wore a suit."
After a court hearing Friday, Murray told a TV reporter he felt no pride and no remorse for the killing.
Pottawatomie County Undersheriff J.T. Palmer, in a probable cause affidavit Thursday, said Murray gave a similar answer to questioning: "He said, 'Well, I am glad I got caught by someone with your high rank, but no, I don't feel any remorse for what I did."
Murray was arrested early Wednesday, near where Sanchez's body was found in a ditch. Investigators say Murray killed Sanchez with two gunshots, firing the second as he begged to live.
