TULSA, OK - The U.S. Secretary of Defense has confirmed the death of U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe's son, 52-year-old Dr. Perry Inhofe, who was killed in a weekend plane crash in northeast Oklahoma.

Colonel Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, says Monday night that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel "was informed of Senator Inhofe's son's death."
