UPDATE: OKC Sees First Homicide of the Year
Police were called to a home in the 2800 block of SW 63rd St. early Saturday morning, after someone reported a possible stabbing at a home. When officers arrived, they found the woman dead in front the yard, the Oklahoma City Police Department said.
Police were told a white male had walked away from the scene. That man was located at a convenience store on Tinker Diagonal and taken into custody.
Neighbors tell Fox 25 that the suspect David Dean Nichols, 40, was the victim's ex-husband. Police have not yet named the victim, but neighbors identified her as Jenna Flippo. They said Flippo feared Nichols and that she had even taken out restraining orders against him.
The community is shocked at the crime. Although they knew about Flippo and Nichols' relationship, they said they never thought it would come to this kind of violence.
"She was a good woman, a loving mother and a good friend. And that's really sad what happened to her," one neighbor said.
Neighbors said Flippo had three children, ages six, seven, and eleven. They gathered toys for the children at Flippo's front steps and put up a sign on home in tribute, ignoring the blood that still stained the yard.
"Just be praying for her kids, 'cause they're going to have a hard time," another neighbor said.
Nichols was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on a homicide complaint.
This is the first homicide in Oklahoma City this year. Last year a near-record 99 people were victims of homicide. In 2012, Oklahoma City recorded its first homicide case on January 7th.
