GARBER - The Garfield County Sheriff's Office (GCSO) and the Oklahoma Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) are looking into the death of a woman in Garber.

Around 2 p.m. Saturday afternoon a 4-year-old child was found wandering in the area of the 400 block of E. Ponca Street in Garber.  A neighbor returned the child to their home, where the body of a woman was discovered.

The GCSO was called and with EMTs with the Garber Fire Department it was determined the woman had died under suspicious circumstances.  A search warrant was applied for and granted.  Investigators say after talking to neighbors and relatives, determined a suspect in the death was Christopher Ryan Sparks, 23.

An arrest warrant was granted by a district judge. Sparks was determined to be in the Phoenix, Ariz. area where law enforcement agencies were contacted.  Sparks was found and held on a fugitive warrant.  An extradition proceeding to bring him back to Oklahoma is expected later this week.
