OKLAHOMA CITY — Authorities say one person has been taken into custody following the death of an Oklahoma City woman.

Late last month, police responded to a disturbance call at a motel near N. Lincoln and 50th St.

“Police were made aware of a disturbance going on in a hotel room. This hotel is in the 5300 block of N. Lincoln,” said MSgt. Gary Knight with the Oklahoma City Police Department. “A manager had to actually open the door and let them in.”

Once officers were inside the room, they found the body of 31-year-Brooklyn BreYanna Stevenson.
