McCURTAIN COUNTY, Oklahoma -

After going cold for 10 years, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has made an arrest in the case of a missing woman from McCurtain County.

Hope Meek, 25, was reported missing by her husband in late February 2002, several days after he last saw her.  OSBI was involved early in this case and has gathered ample circumstantial evidence to show that Hope is deceased and that she died February 21, 2002, after a fight with her husband at their home. 

OSBI agents arrested Hope's husband, 39-year-old Jerry Meek, early Friday morning at the International Paper Company in Valliant, where he works. He was booked into the McCurtain County Jail on one count of first-degree murder. His bond was set at $250,000.

The OSBI says this arrest was made possible by a new district attorney, who was willing to prosecute a case without the victim's body and the passage of time to prove Hope is deceased.
