MULDROW, OK -- A Muldrow man is facing a murder charge after a body was found covered with a sheet in a yard.

Muldrow police say the body of whom they believe to be Terry Stuart was found in his own back yard covered with a sheet by his neighbor Monday afternoon. Police say Stuart's roommate, Kelly King, was arrested following a high speed chase to Sallisaw after investigators tried questioning him about Stuart's death.

Chief George Lawson says Stuart's body was identified by family from tattoos, but the body has been sent to the Oklahoma Crime Lab for identification.

King also faces several traffic charges in relation to the police chase.
