TAHLEQUAH -- Police are investigating the death of a woman found Wednesday evening in her Tahlequah home.
Brandy Rachelle Ellenburg-Baggs, 34, was found dead at her residence by a friend around 9 p.m. Wednesday.
Tahlequah police are treating the death as suspicious at this time.
Tahlequah Chief of Police Nate King says Ellenburg-Baggs reported a physical domestic assault to police Tuesday.
"Miss Ellenburg was concerned for her safety when she came and spoke with us and wanted to document the instance, but not report it officially," said King. "Given the circumstances both leading up to and following Miss Ellenburg's death, we do believe this death to be a suspicious death."
The victim's boyfriend, Scott Garrrett, 30, of LeFlore County was arrested Thursday morning and is being held at the Cherokee County Detention Center.
Police say Garrett and Ellenburg had been in a relationship the last few years. Garrret has been named a person of interest in the case, but is not a suspect, according to police.
He faces charges of domestic assault in the presence of a minor.
King said there was no obvious trauma to Ellenburg's body. An autopsy will be performed to determine the official cause of death.
Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Tahlequah Police Department.
