Woman jailed in death of Oklahoma City man

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Police have arrested a woman in connection with the death of a man who was found at a northwest Oklahoma City residence.

Amanda Hunter was booked into the Oklahoma County jail Friday on a first-degree murder complaint in the death of Osmani Chicas-Melgar.

Officers received a call from paramedics about a suspicious death and found Chicas-Melgar on Sunday with trauma to his body that was consistent with a homicide.

Authorities say he had been stabbed in the torso.

An arrest affidavit states that Chicas-Melgar's roommate saw Hunter go into his bedroom, then leave after another man showed up. The roommate found him the next day.

Police alleged that Hunter may be a prostitute who had sex with Chicas-Melgar in exchange for drugs.

Hunter hasn't been formally charged.
