Charges Filed on Suspects in 14-Year-Old's Murder

Posted: Updated:

The Tulsa County District Attorney's Office has filed charges against two men who were arrested in connection to the murder of 14-year-old April Montano in late May.

Both Demonte Rushing and David Ruble were charged with first degree murder and attempted robbery with a firearm.

According to the police, Ruble was the driver of the black charger stopped by Tulsa Police Patrol officers soon after the shooting took place. Detectives interviewed more witnesses prior to arresting Ruble for the murder.

"The investigation at this leads us to believe that robbery was the motive," according to Sgt. Dave Walker. "The family was targeted because they were in possession of ATV’s that Ruble and others wanted."

Demonte Rushing was arrested shortly after Ruble.

Montano was with her family in a white quad cab pickup pulling a trailer full of ATV's when she was shot in the head by a suspect in another vehicle, police say.

The pickup was in the area of Pine and Peoria before getting on the Gilcrease Expressway. When police arrived, Montano was inside the vehicle on the side of the road.

She was initially transported to Saint Francis Hospital in critical condition.The black vehicle did not stop after the shooting, police say.
