ANADARKO, Okla. – Authorities have arrested a man in connection to a homicide that occurred on Christmas Eve in Anadarko.

Just after 1 p.m. on Christmas Eve, Eddy Mahseet, 39, was found dead in the home she shared with her boyfriend, 59-year-old Lawrence Hinton.

Hinton was found with sharp force trauma to his throat and transported to a hospital by helicopter.

Investigators later determined Hinton was responsible for Mahseet’s death.

Hinton has since been charged with one count of first degree murder.

An autopsy showed that Mahseet died from her throat being cut.

Her back was also broken sometime near her death, officials say.

Hinton was booked into the Caddo County Jail Monday.
