OSBI Makes Arrest in Idabel Murder

This afternoon, OSBI agents and Idabel Police arrested a 16–year-old boy for the murder of 15-year-old Sharonda Bronner.  Bronner’s body was found Monday in the bathroom of the Booker T. Washington Community Center.  She had been shot one time in the head.  The suspect and victim knew each other.

Through days of intense interviews with a number of people and forensic evidence through ballistics, OSBI compiled probably cause for an arrest.  An affidavit has also been filed with the McCurtain County Court Clerk’s Office.  Due to the child’s age, OSBI will not release his name at this time.  The suspect was arrested at the Idabel High School this afternoon.
