Jonathan Nichols

Former state Sen. Jonathan Nichols, who grew up in Muskogee and graduated from Muskogee High School, has been found dead in his Norman home at the age of 53, according to police reports.

Nichols, who served in the Oklahoma Senate for 12 years from 2000 to 2012, was an attorney who spent the rest of his life working in politics. He was called “the most brilliant political legal mind in the Oklahoma State Legislature” by his Senate successor, Rob Standridge.

Nichols was also an attorney and assistant district attorney for Cleveland County. He was found dead in his home from an apparent gunshot wound on Wednesday. Police are still investigating and working with the medical examiner’s office to determine the time and cause of death.
