Lawrence Paul Anderson, 42, is accused in three slayings in Chickasha.

CHICKASHA — A triple murder suspect has confessed, saying he killed a neighbor first and cut her heart out to eat at home, the OSBI reported.

Lawrence Paul Anderson is accused of killing the neighbor, Andrea Lynn Blankenship, 41, at her home and then going to his home and killing his uncle and a 4-year-old girl on Feb. 9. He also is accused of stabbing his aunt. She survived.

The prosecutor plans to charge Anderson, 42, on Tuesday. The death penalty "is on the table," Grady County District Attorney Jason Hicks said Monday.

Investigators are trying to determine if he was under the influence of drugs on Feb. 9, The Oklahoman has learned. At the time of his guilty plea in 2017, he told the judge he took bipolar medication.
