OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Authorities are releasing more details related to a deadly murder-suicide in Oklahoma City.

Shortly before midnight on June 4, Oklahoma City police were called to a home near N.W. 36th and Villa on a trouble unknown call.

When officers arrived, they found the body of 59-year-old Carla Dawn Evans.

Initial reports indicate that she appeared to have been beaten to death.
