Investigators in Broken Arrow say what is first reported as a suicide is actually a homicide. Corporal Leon Calhoun says the evidence at the scene didn’t match the wife’s story of a suicide by the 69-year-old male victim. Calhoun says the suspect apparently at some point confided what happened with her two adult daughters.

The woman and one daughter have been arrested. The other daughter wasn’t immediately located. Police had been called to the residence previously for domestic related incidents.
