OKLAHOMA CITY -

Police have arrested the boyfriend of a woman found beaten to death inside her southwest Oklahoma City apartment.

The U.S. Marshal Metro Fugitive Task Force with the assistance of the Absentee Shawnee Tribal Police arrested 22-year-old Devin Alan Timmons at a home in the 300 block of SE 180th in Norman, early Sunday evening.

An arrest warrant was issued for Timmons Friday, after 26-year-old Laura Brooks was found dead inside the couple's apartment at the Country Club Apartments on SW 57th and Agnew.

Court records show Timmons has a history of domestic abuse and has spent time in jail in Pottawatomie County.

Laura's brother, Ben Brooks, told News 9 that his sister and Timmons had a rocky relationship. He told his sister to leave Timmons several times.

Timmons will be booked into the Oklahoma County Jail.
