TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa Police arrested a man in the city's latest homicide.

Gary Phenix, 47, was booked into the Tulsa County Jail on a complaint of first degree murder.

Residents noticed the man slouched over in a car Sunday morning, but thought he was just asleep. When he hadn't moved by afternoon, they got suspicious and called the cops.

Police say the victim appeared to have suffered several blows to the head. Police say the victim was in his mid-30s, but have not released a name yet.
