Investigators are waiting for autopsy results after a woman's body was found inside a burned home near Little Axe earlier this week.

The woman's name has not been released yet, but a suspect, Cody Fish, has been arrested in connection to the fire.

On Monday night, deputies found Cody Fish about a mile from his home walking in the intersection of 156th Avenue and Indian Hills Road. That night they arrested him. He's now facing a first degree arson charge.

Crime scene tape still hangs from limbs outside the mobile home where Fish lived with his wife.

Monday night, Norman and Little Axe fire departments worked to put out the fire inside the mobile home that was tucked away in a wooded area off Carnegie Circle. Inside, firefighters found a woman's body.

Fish was arrested that night for an outstanding warrant out of McClain County for obstructing a police officer in Purcell. He's now in custody in connection with the fire after investigators called it suspicious.

Court records show this is not the first arrest for Fish. He's been arrested multiple times for public intoxication and for property damage charges.

Court documents also show his wife, Brandi, filed a protective order against him in 2013, but a month later it was dismissed. A year later, his wife filed another protective order.

Fish was convicted three months later of violating that protective order after showing up at his wife's home.

Investigators told News 9 Fish could facing additional charges. More information on this investigation should be released next week.

The  Cleveland County sheriff's office said they're waiting on the medical examiner's office to release the victim's name and cause of death.
