ARDMORE, OK -- Ardmore Police have ruled the stabbing death of a 16 year old Tuesday night a homicide. 31 year old Keith Titsworth of Ardmore was arrested for first degree murder. He is expected to appear in court this week. He is being held at the Carter County Jail on a $2 million bond.

Police say they found 16 year old Madison Nelson's around 7:00 PM Tuesday in the 1500 block of 3rd Northeast.  

Titsworth was located by investigators who teamed up with other area agencies. Det. Barry Antwine said they received information that Titsworth may have fled to the Pontotoc County area. Working through the night and coordinating with Lighthorse PD, District Attorney's Investigators, OSBI and Pontotoc County Sheriff's deputies said they located Titsworth in the early morning hours.

Titsworth lived in the same home as Nelson, but was not on scene when police responded. Investigators are currently speaking with Titsworth and tell us further information will be released.
