NICOMA PARK, Okla. (AP) – Four people have been charged with unauthorized removal of a dead body in connection to the death of a woman found near Nicoma Park.

Twenty-six-year-old Alecia Payne’s body was found in a ditch on March 31. A cause of death has not been determined.

Arrest warrants were issued Friday for the four people that have been charged. Investigators say that Payne had been staying in a room with one of the suspects at a Super 8 Motel, when she died.

Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Mark Opgrande said that there is surveillance video of Payne’s body, wrapped in a blanket, being taken from the room to a vehicle.
