OKLAHOMA CITY -

A former Cordell man was indicted on one count of first-degree murder in the 2007 death of his ex-girlfriend.

The Attorney General’s Multicounty Grand Jury Unit released an indictment on Tuesday against Ronnie Dean Denny Jr.. Denny, 35, was arrested on July 1, 2014 on a warrant in Collin County, Texas, for the death of Melissa Flores. Detectives have been working on the case for years, but the arrest warrant is based upon the indictment.

According to the indictment, Denny shot Flores with a 9mm rifle, which resulted in her death. The grand jury issued the indictment during its June session.

“Melissa’s family has endured a difficult seven years waiting for delayed justice. I commend our agents and prosecutors for their commitment to this case to make an arrest in Melissa’s death and bring some solace to her family,” said Attorney General Scott Pruitt. “Our multicounty grand jury offers an opportunity to assist local law enforcement in the investigation and prosecution of cases, ranging from homicide to narcotics violations. I commend the grand jurors for their continued sacrifice and dedication to this public service.”

Flores, the mother of three young children, was reported missing by her family on Jan. 28, 2007. She was last known to be at the Cordell home of Denny, with whom she had a child, according to authorities.

Items belonging to Flores, including her cell phone, purse and car, were found at Denny’s home. Law enforcement officials searched Denny’s home, but did not find enough evidence to arrest him at that time.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has interviewed numerous people and searched for Flores’ remains, but her remains have never been found, according to the AG’s office.

Multiple agencies, including the Washita County Sheriff’s Office, the Washita County District Attorney’s Office, and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, have been investigating the case since 2007.
