A combination of very strong winds, falling temperatures and frozen precipitation will make Wednesday and Wednesday night dangerous for motorists. Freezing rain and sleet will change to snow before ending late Wednesday or early Thursday. Wind chills of 5 to 10 degrees...with air temperatures in the low 20s...can be expected. Roads will be icy Thursday morning but should melt during the day as skies clear and temperatures rise above freezing.
McCURTAIN COUNTY, OK - Oklahoma state police make an arrest in a ten year old McCurtain County cold case.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation tells us this morning they arrested 39-year-old Jerry Meek who reported his wife, 25-year-old Hope Meek, missing back in 2002 a few days after the couple had a fight. They collected enough evidence then to show she was dead, but never found her body.
The OSBI says Meek's arrest was made possible by a new district attorney willing to prosecute the case without the victim's body. He was booked into the McCurtain County Jail for first degree murder.
