McALESTER, Okla. (AP) – Authorities say three men have been arrested in connection with the death of a man whose body was found in a southeast Oklahoma cemetery.

Pittsburg County Sheriff Chris Morris said Wednesday that 21-year-old Tyler Morgan of Haileyville, 46-year-old Jimmy Nace of Haileyville and 40-year-old Matt Vermillion of Krebs were arrested in connection with the death of 49-year-old Bob Dalpoas of Haileyville.

Dalpoas’ body was found July 4 in Red Oak Cemetery in Bache, near McAlester and about 130 miles southeast of Oklahoma City.

Court records don’t show charges have been filed against any of the three in custody.

Nace and Vermillion are being held in the Pittsburg County Jail. Morris says Morgan, a U.S. Army soldier, is in the custody of the Army at a base near Tacoma, Washington.
