IDABEL, Okla. — A McCurtain County man has been arrested on a first-degree murder charge in connection with his fiancee's death.
Brian McMahon was arrested Wednesday and is being held in the McCurtain County jail. His bail has not been set yet, said Sheriff Kevin Clardy in a news release. The McCurtain County Sheriff's Office and the Oklahoma Bureau of Investigation made the arrest after an investigation that lasted several months.
The body of Roxie Lenora Phillips Faizy, 56, was found in March in a creek just west of Valliant, Oklahoma.
Her body was wrapped in a chain and her hands had been zip-tied, a state investigator said.
Faizy last was seen Jan. 25 at a tanning salon in Broken Bow, Oklahoma. Investigators were working the case as a missing person until the body was found. Faizy's family was also offering a reward for information leading to her location.
