Kyle VanNortwick

Kyle VanNortwick, 36, of Muskogee was convicted in federal court yesterday of second-degree murder and now faces 10 years in federal prison for stabbing his twin brother, Adam, to death with a kitchen knife in 2018.

The trial was originally in state court, but those charges were dismissed because VanNortwick is a Native American. He was charged with first-degree murder in federal court, and a jury yesterday found him not guilty of first-degree murder, which usually requires premeditated intent, instead convicting him of second-degree murder, which is not premeditated..

The murder occurred during a fight between the two in the kitchen of a house on Chestnut Street.
