A Mill Creek woman is under investigation in the death of Larry Dean Farmer, 51, of Mill Creek.
Johnston County Sheriff Tom Winkler said Stephanie Jean Arles, 50, was taken into custody on an outstanding warrant Sunday and is a suspect in the shooting. Farmer passed away at the University of Oklahoma Medical Center in Oklahoma City Sunday. He suffered a gunshot wound to the head Saturday evening.
"We got a call at approximately 9:10 p.m. in reference to a shooting at Mill Creek," Winkler said. "Deputies arrived a short time later and the EMS had already picked up the victim and transported him to Sulphur. He was then mediflighted to the OU Medical Center."
Winkler said the department is in the process of filing charges related to the shooting as well as drug charges. The investigation is ongoing and Winkler is hopeful charges will be filed within the next day or two.
He said evidence would be sent to the OSBI lab for processing. He also said the department thinks it has the murder weapon but there was more than one weapon present.
