A man is accused of killing his 60-year-old wife, though police have yet to release a motive in the case.
On March 29, Tulsa police announced the arrest of Kevin Snoddy. He was charged with first-degree for the murder of his wife, Cheryl Thomas, police said.
On March 26, police went to an apartment to check on Thomas’ well-being, according to Tulsa police. KOTV reported that friends asked police to check after they couldn’t get a hold of Thomas.
The victim was found dead under several blankets, according to KOTV.
Police said Thomas died from blunt-force trauma. Snoddy was quickly named as a suspect and police asked for help finding him. He was arrested a few days after the alleged murder.
Investigators have not released a motive in the case.
Friends told KOTV that Thomas loved God and her family. They noted she was active in her church and selfless.
“She would just absolutely do anything for you," Terri Yater told the TV station. "If you needed anything, she would find a way to get it done."
