SULPHUR, Oklahoma -

A Sulphur man's death is being investigated as homicide, according to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.

Agents said 29-year-old Zachory Daniel Blackburn was shot inside a trailer home in the 2700 block of W. 14th Street in Sulphur early Friday night.

Authorities have arrested a woman they believe to be responsible for Blackburn's death. Sulphur resident Rhonda Lynn Frantz was arrested at 2 a.m. Saturday in the parking lot of the Crossway Baptist Church, located on Highway 7 in Sulphur.

Frantz, 29, was living at the trailer house where Blackburn was shot, and Blackburn's body was found inside her vehicle at the time of her arrest, according to the OSBI. She was booked in to the Murray County Jail on a complaint of first-degree murder.

The Murray County Sheriff's Office requested the OSBI's help in the investigation. The medical examiner's office will perform an autopsy on the victim's body.
