Local law enforcement and bail enforcers are looking for a suspect in a 2013 Tulsa murder.

Jordan Mitchell is accused in the Tulsa shooting death of Christian Dehart.

Police say it happened during a home invasion.

In March, the suspect was given a $350,000 bond that his grandmother posted for him.

His defense attorney asked for the bond because he said his client was cooperative, not a flight risk and had served enough time in jail, as the charges had been dropped once and then refiled.

Mitchell returned for court two times in April and June.

In August, the state asked to revoke his bond citing a recent arrest in Oklahoma County on a possession of marijuana complaint.

Records show that Mitchell never showed up for the September hearing on that filing.

Now, a new warrant has been issued for his arrest. This warrant calls for jail without bond.

Bail enforcers on the case fear he is out of state and are offering a $5,000 reward for any information that leads to an arrest, you can anonymously contact them on their Oklahoma Most Wanted Fugitives page on Facebook.

Mitchell and his alleged accomplice are set for jury trial in April of 2017.
