State representatives arrested two people in relation to a Cushing man’s death in a fire-ravaged travel trailer Monday morning.

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agents arrested Bridgett Barton, 29, and Troy Wayne, 23, late Wednesday. Shadowen faces complaints of first-degree murder, first-degree arson and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, while Barton faces first-degree burglary complaint.

Both defendants, who are in Payne County jail, could face additional charges in the death of Patrick McGuire, 40.

McGuire was found dead in a trailer in the 100th block of North Wade Avenue in Cushing, where firefighters had to be called to put out a fire about 6:30 a.m. Monday morning.
