Matthew Tyler Rekart chargedwith murder of Shayla Nicole Grant

When an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper reviewed the electronic data on Grant’s car, they discovered that she was only traveling 12 mph at the time of the allegedly fatal crash. The data also reportedly showed that neither accelerator nor brake pressure was applied in the five seconds before Grant’s vehicle crashed.

“The damage to Grant’s vehicle appeared minimal and did not appear consistent with the fatal injuries sustained by Grant,” the affidavit reported. A medical examiner on the scene reportedly found a dash cam in Grant’s car and planted the SD card as evidence. A review of the footage turned up a disturbing revelation, police said.


Dash cam footage reportedly showed Grant arriving at the home of Rekart and his wife, Tiffany Rekart, and parking. A man believed to be Rekart then walks around the front of Grant’s car and apparently gets inside. The car then reportedly pulls out of the driveway, drives to a nearby abandoned property with a shed, and parks, in front of the small structure.

After parking, the dash cam begins to shake in what investigators believe to be a struggle inside the car. Rekart is then supposedly seen walking to the shed with various items which he places in the shed before returning to the vehicle.

The car is then “rolled” until it hits a guardrail at the location where authorities later responded to the alleged car accident, KFSM reported. Grant’s mother told Fort Smith ABC affiliate KHBS that her daughter had the dashcam installed a few years ago after she was involved in a car accident. Authorities reportedly located Grant’s phone inside the shed on the abandoned property.


In an interview with police, Tiffany Rekart said that she had informed her husband on March 31 that she wanted to divorce her. Rekart reportedly took her wife’s cell phone on April 5 and found text messages between her and Grant, refusing to return the phone until April 7, the day after Grant was killed.

It is believed that Rekart used his wife’s phone to lure Grant to her home while Tiffany Rekart was at the grocery store with her children. Rekart pleaded not guilty Monday to first-degree murder, court records show. His next court appearance is scheduled for June 2023.Read More…….
