Oklahoma City police announced Thursday they made an arrest in the 2016 death of an 82-year-old woman.

According to police, on March 7, 2016, officers responded to a check-the-welfare call at a home near South Bryant Avenue and Southeast 59th Street. They found the body of 82-year-old Ikuko George, who had injuries consistent with homicide, police said.

The case remained unsolved until recently when new information came to light that implicated Antoine Thomas, 18, in the killing of George, according to police.

Thomas was already in jail in connection with the murder of another elderly woman that occurred earlier this year, according to police. On May 22, 2020, the Oklahoma City Fire Department discovered the body of 78-year-old Sara Cleveland while fighting a house fire at near Southeast 44th Street and Sunnylane Road. Cleveland had injuries consistent with homicide, and police said she was killed before the house was set on fire.

Police said Thomas was 13 years old at the time of the George’s death, and he is now facing first-degree murder charges in both cases.
