Preliminary hearing set for suspects accused of killing, dismembering men during Craigslist deal

MOORE, Okla. – The suspects accused of killing and dismembering two men during a Craigslist sale will appear in court  Friday for a preliminary hearing.

Around 6 p.m. on April 14, 21-year-old Alize Ramon Smith and 21-year-old Jarron Keonte Moreland, went to the Crest in Moore to do a Craigslist exchange, Moreland’s family members told KFOR.

While at the Crest, police say a white van pulled up to the two men, and Moreland and Smith either got into the van willingly or were pulled inside the vehicle. At some point, witnesses reported that they heard gunshots and the van sped out of the parking lot.

After Moreland and Smith were reported missing, Moore police took a closer look at that Craigslist meeting.

Authorities were able to trace messages Smith sent before the meeting to 16-year-old Brett Boettler.
