One male has died, possibly after a fight in LeFlore County, which resulted in two people being arrested.

Jonathan Martin, 31, and Rachel Wells, 29, were placed under arrest in connection for domestic assault and battery and child abuse.

According to a press release, LeFlore County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a residence on State Highway 63 east of Big Cedar near the Arkansas state line for a call of a domestic disturbance and a man not breathing.

There had been an altercation between the deceased male and two other adults at the residence. Three people from the residence left prior to law enforcement arriving on the scene.

The State Medical Examiners Office was contacted and the body of the deceased male was taken to Tulsa for an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

During the investigation, it was determined that an adult female at the residence had been assaulted by two of the people who fled. It was also determined that a juvenile male had been assaulted by the same two individuals.

Polk County Deputies located these individuals and followed them back to the residence to follow up with the investigation. Upon further questioning, Martin and Wells were arrested.
