Dominick Taylor, 19, Braman, is being held in the Kay County Detention Center on a complaint of first degree murder. Formal charges are expected to be filed this week.

“Around 11:30 p.m. we made contact with a potential suspect and secured his residence. The witness then took us to a field where he said he saw a dead body in a field,” said Kelley.
“There we found a crime scene but no body. We continued to search and found a second crime scene with the body.”
Kelley said the deceased had been shot multiple times.
“We believe he may have been killed on Friday night,” said Kelley. “We collected statements from witnesses and detained the suspect.
