A teenager is found dead inside an apartment at the Westgate Crossing Complex in Warr Acres. Now her 19-year-old boyfriend is behind bars for first degree murder.

Warr Acres Police got a call from the suspect's mother around 8 a.m. on Monday. When officers arrived to the apartment, they report finding 15-year-old Raeviana Satterfield dead in the bathroom.

Major Hugh Osborn says the victim had "obvious signs of trauma to her body."

Officers later arrested 19-year-old Charles Joe Sykes. Neighbors say Sykes lived at the apartment with his mother and it was not uncommon to hear arguing coming for their apartment.

Jeremy Miller lives in the neighboring apartment.

"I heard a commotion," he said.

Miller says he did not intervene because the arguments were frequent and he could not have predicted the outcome.

"It's a bad deal all together. I wish I would have been able to change something but I don't know if I could have," Miller said.

Police say at this point in the investigation, they are unable to determine when the murder occurred or why.

Police report Sykes is not cooperating with investigators. Police booked Sykes into the Oklahoma county jail for first degree murder.
