TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A man arrested in Illinois has been charged in the strangulation death of a woman in a car at a Tulsa apartment complex.

The Tulsa World ( ) reports 45-year-old Renese Bramlett was charged Thursday with first-degree murder in the death of 34-year-old Michelle Lynn Spence.

According to police, a tenant at the complex called 911 on March 20 after Bramlett and Spence’s two sons found their mother’s body.
