Woman Arrested In Texoma Faces Double Homicide Charges

The ex-wife of a Topeka, Kansas man is charged with two counts of first-degree murder after she was arrested outside a Duncan, Oklahoma fast food restaurant on Monday. It's a case that has been considered "cold" for close to a decade.

Dana Chandler, 51, is accused in the July 2002 shooting deaths of her former husband, Mike Sisco, and his fiancee Karen Harkness. Both were shot multiple times as they slept in their Topeka home.

A task force of Topeka police officers, Kansas Bureau of Investigation special agents and Oklahoma law enforcement officers made the arrest. The case gained national attention in October 2009 when it was featured on the CBS program "48 Hours Mystery."

Chandler now awaits extradition as she remains behind bars in the Stephens County Jail in Oklahoma.
