    TULSA, Okla. - UPDATE 05/02/19: A judge denied the defense's motion for a gag order in the case. Colby Wilson is due back in court June 5.


    A man is facing new charges including first-degree murder after a domestic incident in east Tulsa Monday evening.

    Tulsa police told FOX23 they received a call about a suicidal man around 5 p.m. Monday. Officers responded to the home at Sawmill Apartments near 36th Street and 129th East Avenue to find a pregnant woman on the floor as the suspect's mother performed CPR.

    Police say they believe there was a domestic argument between the woman -- Allyssa Fielding -- and her boyfriend, Colby Wilson.

    Paramedics took Fielding to the hospital where she later died. Police reports say she had a brain bleed, fractures to her face, collapsed lungs, and multiple cuts. Detectives say they were told the unborn baby is dead. Fielding was six months pregnant.

    Officers arrested Wilson who is now facing charges for first-degree murder for the death of the baby and Fielding, and aggravated assault and battery.

    Police say Fielding had a protective order against Wilson after he was convicted of assaulting her in 2017. Wilson served about a year of jail time.

    During the investigation, police learned Wilson had allegeldy been keeping Fielding hostage in the apartment. Officials said she was made to sit in a chair all day in front of a phone that constantly livestreamed to his phone so he could watch her. They said she had been cut off from family and the outside world.

    Investigators believe the violence lasted for months. She was taken to the doctor once on March 27 and doctors told her the baby was healthy and growing appropriately.

    According to police, people did try to intervene. They said several police reports had been filed, though they were not allowed to enter the apartment without a warrant and couldn't see Fielding.

    At this time, police do not know what triggered the fatal beating.

    The death of the mother and baby mark Tulsa's 18th and 19th homicides of 2019:

    The family announced that they will have a private memorial service for Fielding and her unborn baby.

    The family told FOX23 they are working with a nonprofit organization to help others in domestic violence situations and educate women to prevent them from becoming victims.
