OSBI special agents and Blaine County deputies made an arrest Friday night in a homicide from last week.

Investigators arrested Alan Dale Brower on complaints of first degree murder, second degree burglary, and possession of a controlled dangerous substance. He was arrested at a relative’s home in Watonga. Earlier Friday, the medical examiner’s office positively identified the victim as Karlie Pierce, 30.

She died from blunt force trauma and a fractured neck. Brower and Pierce lived together near Watonga with their three children.

Wednesday, a rancher found Pierce’s body in the middle of his field near Greenfield. Her body had been partially burned.

Brower will be booked into the Blaine County jail.
