Okla. man charged in slaying of female escort

McALESTER — CLAREMORE, Okla. (AP) — Authorities have issued an arrest warrant for a Claremore man who is accused of strangling a female escort and throwing her from a bridge.

Prosecutors on Wednesday charged 35-year-old Vance Dillon Wright with first-degree murder in the death of 27-year-old Kelsey Jean Bray.

Wright has not been arrested but the Tulsa World reports that bond is set at $1 million.

Prosecutors say a body was found in October along Interstate 44 in Rogers County. The badly decomposed corpse was later identified as Bray’s.

Investigative documents say Wright met Bray on Oct. 9 through a Tulsa escort service. Bray’s body was found about two weeks later.
