A Garvin County man could be looking at a murder charge after a woman, with whom he had already been arrested for physically abusing, died at the hospital on Thursday.
It all started on Monday, when 30-year-old Brandon Christian and an unidentified family member brought 32-year-old Desiree Hill to the Pauls Valley General Hospital emergency room. At the time, doctors say Hill was unresponsive and had internal injuries and visible trauma to her body.
Officers arrested Christian Monday evening for a felony charge of Domestic Assault and Battery Resulting in Great Bodily Harm. He was taken to the Garvin County Detention Center where he remains on a $250,000 bond.
Hill was transferred from Pauls Valley General to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City where she was pronounced dead just after 6 p.m. on Thursday.
The state medical examiner's office will determine the exact cause of death. Any new charges are pending with the preliminary findings of the medical examiner.
No other details have been released at this time.
