VALLIANT, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says a woman was found shot to death in southeastern Oklahoma and a suspect is in custody.

The OSBI says police in the McCurtain County town of Valliant were responding to reports of a prowler Monday night at a home on the town’s south side when they found 38-year-old Tamera Moore fatally shot inside the home.

The OSBI said Thursday that police also found a former boyfriend of Moore’s inside the home. The agency says police asked for OSBI assistance and the former boyfriend was later arrested on a first-degree murder complaint.

Jail records show the man is in custody, but court records do not indicate that formal charges have been filed.
