It's Tuesday. Here's a look at today's headlines:

Whatever happened to Teddy Mitchell?

The Oklahoman's Brianna Bailey has a new blog called Oklahoma Vice. 

There, she updated the case of Teddy Mitchell, the former Oklahoma City bookie sent to prison, as reported by Nolan Clay in January 2014. 

U.S. District Judge David Russell punished Mitchell for his role in Gortation Management, a Costa Rica-based internet business that accepted illegal sports bets. The judge also punished him for conspiring to commit money laundering.

Mitchell also hosted illegal high-stakes poker games at his home, the FBI said.

Julie Mitchell, 34, Teddy Mitchell's wife, was brutally beaten to death at their northwest Oklahoma City home on Nov. 2, 2010. Police have made no arrests in her homicide.

Mitchell, Bailey reported, now lives in Arlington, Texas, and has stayed out of trouble since being released from prison in February 2016. He is taking care of his daughter, now 7, and making plans to open a legal enterprise. Read more.
