OKLAHOMA CITY-- A woman is fighting for her life, while her boyfriend is in jail.

Tony Wilson, 40, is being held with a $200,000 dollar bond.

His girlfriend is in the ICU and has not woken up since the day she got there.

“To have her lifeless when she left here. I don't understand," Shirley Rice, her neighbor, said.

"She's trying to hold on. She’s a strong woman. She's fighting," friend Cledith Davis said.

September 3rd is a day Davis will never forget.

"I was inside my apartment and I heard a loud scream," Davis recalled.

He said he ran out to find Wilson.

"He ran out and said help me! Help me! Call 911," Davis said.

According to a police report, Wilson said he came home to find his girlfriend “laying on the bathroom floor bleeding from an unknown spot on her head”.

Officers say he later claimed her injury was “a result of her falling while in the shower”.

Davis did not buy his story.

"There was blood everywhere. She was laying on the floor. Blood was on the bed everywhere else besides where she was at," Davis said.

Doctors said the victim has “two injuries to the back of her head consistent with being struck by a blunt object”.

Her brain trauma is reportedly most associated with Shaken Baby Syndrome or possibly asphyxia.

According to a court document, a physician said her “brain trauma may be caused by asphyxiation from a pillow”.

"I didn't understand how anyone can do that to anyone," Rice said. "My heart goes out to her and her family because they're the one's suffering right now.”

Neighbors said the couple had been fighting for a couple of days and were yelling just before the incident.

Police said they found a firearm in the apartment, which Wilson was not allowed to have.
