Tulsa man accused of shooting, killing girlfriend

TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa police arrested a man accused of shooting and killing a woman on Saturday.

When officers were called to the scene near 71st and Yale, they were told by Jermico Willis that his girlfriend, Iesha Wallace, shot herself. First responders found her dead inside the apartment.

Officials said the scene in the apartment conflicted with Willis' claim and too many inconsistencies were presented to investigators. Police said they recovered a handgun from the apartment and arrested Willis for being a felon in possession of a firearm. He had been released from federal custody in February 2017, according to police.

Investigators now consider Willis a suspect in the shooting based on new evidence from the medical examiner's autopsy report. Tulsa police said they filed paperwork to upgrade Willis' charge to First Degree Murder.
