OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says two men have been arrested in connection with the death of a man whose body was found in a northeastern Oklahoma ditch.

The OSBI said in a news release Tuesday that the suspects were arrested Sunday in Mayes County. Both are jailed without bond in neighboring Craig County on first-degree murder warrants in the death of 28-year-old Christopher Boren. Court records do not show that formal charges have been filed.

An OSBI spokeswoman did not immediately return a phone call for further comment.

The agency previously said Boren’s body was found in southern Craig County near the Mayes County line, about 55 miles (90 kilometers) northeast of Tulsa.


The state medical examiner’s office will determine the cause of death.
