TULSA, Okla — Tulsa police arrested a man Monday in connection with a woman's death in south Tulsa.

Kevin Snoddy is in custody and accused of killing his wife Cheryl Thomas on Saturday.

Tulsa police responded to a call at Avondale Apartment Homes near 71st Street and Riverside for a welfare check.

Police said an out-of-state family member called in the welfare check for Thomas.

Jacob Ernst lives near Thomas' apartment, he told 2 News, "when I was coming home I saw cops talking among each other. There were more cop cars. I didn’t know what was going on it kind of seemed odd."

Police said when the apartment maintenance person opened the door, they found Thomas dead in the apartment.

Police say a tip from Tulsa Crime Stoppers led officers to Apache Manor apartments Monday night where they found Snoddy who they questioned and booked on a complaint of First-Degree Murder.
