(AP) -- Two people wanted in the August shooting death of a man in southwest Oklahoma have been arrested in Oklahoma City.

Altus Police Chief Tim Murphy told reporters that 24-year-old Marielle Trey Smith and 22-year-old Ryan McKenzie Fields were arrested Thursday and returned to Jackson County.

Smith is jailed on $500,000 bond on a second-degree murder charge and Fields is being held on $250,000 on a charge of being an accessory after the fact.

Court records do not list an attorney for either suspect.

Police say they believe Smith killed 32-year-old Jared Allen Holmes in Altus on Aug. 20 and took his body to neighboring Tillman County, where it was found near Frederick two days later.
