Judge: Claire V. Eagan
Court: United States District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma (Tulsa County)
Plaintiff's Attorney: United States District Attorney’s Office
Description: Tulsa, Oklahoma second-degree murder charge criminal defense lawyer represented Defendant.
“Defendant Anthony Ahaisse was enraged and acted callously when he pulled the trigger and took Gregory Collins’ life in 2019,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Clint Johnson. “This murder case is heartbreaking, and my thoughts today are with Mr. Collins’ friends and loved ones. I am thankful for the joint investigative and prosecutorial work of the Tulsa Police Department, FBI and Assistant U.S. Attorneys Dennis Fries and Rick Cella that helped ensure Ahaisse was brought to justice.”
Ahaisse, 30, of Tulsa, pleaded guilty to second degree murder. If the Court accepts the parties’ plea agreement at sentencing, Ahaisse will receive 420 months in federal prison. U.S. District Judge Claire V. Eagan set sentencing for Oct. 4, 2021.
In his written plea agreement, Ahaisse admitted to murdering Gregory Collins on March 23, 2019, just after 12 am. According to a criminal complaint initially filed in the case, a witness to the crime reported that the victim heard a loud noise outside the home and went to investigate. The victim then ran back to a bedroom and tried to hide under the bed. The woman saw Ahaisse, her ex-boyfriend, enter the room and shoot twice under the bed, striking the victim. The defendant then exited the room.
At approximately 12:20 am, a Tulsa police officer observed a white pickup traveling at a high rate of speed. When the officer attempted to stop the pickup, the driver continued recklessly. Eventually, the driver stopped and was taken into custody and identified as Anthony Ahaisse. The officer observed blood on the defendant’s clothing and discovered a loaded Glock 22 and a shotgun. The Glock recovered from the vehicle was later found to match the ballistics from the crime scene.
The Tulsa Police Department and FBI conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Dennis Fries and Richard Cella prosecuted the case.18:1151, 1153, and 1111 - Murder-First Degree in Indian Country, FORFEITURE ALLEGATION: 18 U.S.C. § 924(d)(1) and 28 U.S.C. § 2461(c) - Firearms Forfeiture
