Man Killed In OKC Is Person Of Interest In 2007 Texas Murder

Oklahoma City police responded to a house in far northeast Oklahoma City, after a woman called to say she had shot her boyfriend. Turns out he was a wanted man in Texas.

We checked with authorities in Texas and discovered he's actually a person of interest in the 2007 murder of a woman in Texas.

Police were called out to an upscale home in the Fort Worth suburb of North Richland Hills back on December 9, 2007, after a 67-year-old woman was shot and killed when she answered her door.

Police say it appeared to be a tragic case of mistaken identity, and that the woman and her family did not appear to be the intended targets.

For six years the case went unsolved, until August, when North Richland Hills police named 36-year-old Willie Cornelius Boley and two others as persons of interest.

Then Sunday night, Oklahoma City police were called out to a home on Scott Street and N.E. 142nd Ct. after the woman who lives here called 911, and found Boley dead inside the home.

"We came outside, and there were lots of police cars and an ambulance and fire truck," said Amanada Bruschi, who lives nearby and was shocked to hear the news. "It's scary knowing something like that happened just two doors down from us."

Turns out, Boley was also wanted for assault and battery in Palestine, Texas. He is accused of brutally beating his wife in March of last year.

Oklahoma City police say it appears Sunday night's incident also began as a domestic dispute between Boley and his current girlfriend, and resulted in the deadly shooting.

"She did speak with investigators she did stay at the scene she was not arrested," said Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow with the Oklahoma City Police Department.

Right now, Oklahoma City police are still investigating, but it will be up to the District Attorney's office to determine if any charge will be filed.

This marks the 75th homicide in Oklahoma City so far this year.
