TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Tulsa police say they arrested a man after officers discovered the remains of two women with apparent gunshot wounds in his apartment bathroom.

Tulsa Police Sgt. Dave Walker says the women were found in Rolando Morales’ apartment Sunday after his ex-wife notified police that there may be bodies there.

Investigators suspect the shootings occurred around 11:30 p.m. Saturday or around midnight Sunday during a party. Walker identified the victims as Amber Collins and Priscilla Ochoa.

Walker says Morales is also accused of setting a car on fire to allegedly “conceal the fact” that the bodies were in his apartment. The 35-year-old has been arrested on two charges of first-degree murder and one charge of third-degree arson.

Morales is being held at Tulsa County jail without bond.
