The Pittsburg County Sheriff's Office has made an arrest in the homicide case of Holly Cantrell.

They arrested 36-year-old Cody Ketchum on Oct. 17 and booked him into jail on a $1 million bond.

Investigators took the case before the state's multi-county grand jury who issued the indictment and arrest warrant.

Cantrell was 40 when she went missing in January of 2017, after she left the McAlester hospital on her lunch break.

A month later, her purse was found in a field. A year later, her remains were found not far from her purse, near the Cardinal Point Recreational Area.

It took two years for the DNA to come back and confirm it was Cantrell's remains.

Sheriff Chris Morris said they got evidence from Ketchum's phone that led to the indictment.
