A man charged with murder in a shooting at Rose State College is facing a new complaint.

Brandon Morrissette, 30, of Noble, was charged with possession of child pornography.

He had already been charged with first-degree murder and possession of a weapon on school property. Police say Morrissette fatally shot Robenie W. “RJ” Long Jr., a 20-year-old student from McLoud.

The shooting took place about 12:17 p.m. on April 24 near the Humanities building on the Rose State Campus. Morrissette allegedly confronted the victim as he was walking from class with Yingzi Li, a student and wife of Morrissette, police said.

She said her husband “believed she and Robenie were having an affair” but said “they were just friendly classmates,” according to a court affidavit.

Morrissette surrendered to police after the shooting.

Police later found images of child pornography on Morrissette’s cell phone and iPad. The images were discovered while analysts were searching for possible evidence related to the homicide case.

Morrissette was charged with possession of child pornography on June 23. He entered a plea of not guilty during a June 23 arraignment hearing.

A preliminary hearing conference was set for July 20 but rescheduled for Sept. 5.

Morrissette has been held in the Oklahoma County jail since April 24.
