A 55-year-old Muldrow man, Kelly King, was arrested at the end of a police pursuit Monday, that raced from Muldrow to Sallisaw, as a suspect in the suspicious death of a 62-year-old Muldrow man. The suspect was temporarily living with the victim in Muldrow, police reported. The victim's name was not released so that family could be advised of the death. King, the suspect, is in the Sequoyah County Detention Center in Sallisaw while authorities continue the investigation into the suspicious death. Muldrow police reported the OSBI has been called in to investigate, and police and the OSBI continued the investigation at the scene Monday evening. Police were at the scene earlier, when the suspect drove by the victim's residence, in the victim's car, a white Mazda. Muldrow police began the pursuit, and called for assistance. The chase went west on State Highway 64, where the suspect eluded several road blocks. Two Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers joined the chase about two miles east of Sallisaw, and were able to stop King and the Mazda at the intersection of Highway 64 and Interstate 40. King surrendered without incident, the OHP reported, and was returned to Muldrow. Stay tuned to KXMX or visit www.kxmx.com for the latest news. By Sally Maxwell, Senior News Director
