A man accused of threatening to kill his ex-wife on multiple occasions is the Tulsa Police Department’s “Most Wanted” fugitive.
Cory Ford Kapple, 31, was charged in October with feloniously pointing a firearm, first-degree burglary, domestic assault and battery in the presence of a minor child, possession of a firearm after a felony conviction and three counts of violating a protective order in two cases, Tulsa County District Court filings show.
Kapple’s ex-wife alleges that he choked her and told her he was murdering her in March and has since stalked, harassed and threatened her, according to court documents filed in August. She was granted an emergency protective order Aug. 17.
Prosecutors assert Kapple has violated the protective order on two occasions by “contacting her in person and threatening her” at their children’s school functions.
The woman told police that Kapple said: “You think a protective order is going to stop me? I’ve been in your backyard the last four nights. I’m going to slit your throat. I will win,” according to an affidavit.
Prosecutors allege Kapple broke into his ex-wife’s home Oct. 13 and threatened her with a pistol.
Kapple pleaded guilty to armed robbery in 1998 and knowingly concealing stolen property in 2003. A 2009 domestic assault and battery charge filed against him was dismissed after a prosecution witness failed to appear, records show.
He is described as white, 5 feet 9 inches tall and 200 pounds with brown eyes and hair.
Anyone with information regarding Kapple’s whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS (2677) or submit a tip online at tulsaworld.com/crimestoppers.
