MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A woman wanted for homicide in Oklahoma has been arrested in Wisconsin.

The Dane County Sheriff’s Office says the 59-year-old woman was taken into custody during a traffic stop Thursday afternoon on a Wagoner County, Oklahoma warrant for first-degree murder with deliberate intent and desecration of a corpse. TMJ4 is not yet naming the suspect as she has not been criminally charged.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Elise Schaffer says the victim was reported missing last spring and that she and the suspect lived together.

The woman had reported Talina Galloway missing to Wagoner County law enforcement in mid-April. A warrant on the murder charges was issued Thursday.
