THE VILLAGE — The victim of a homicide in The Village on Friday died from blunt force trauma to the head, a medical examiner spokeswoman said Tuesday.
Rachel Rogers, 24, died Friday and another woman was badly injured after being sexually assaulted, tied up, beaten and stabbed, according to court documents.
Police arrested Albert Johnson Jr. Friday night on complaints of rape and murder in connection with Rogers’ death. Johnson is the boyfriend of the woman injured during the attack, police said.
Police in The Village responded to a report of an assault about 7:15 a.m. Friday at 2952 Lakeside Drive. When officers arrived, a badly injured woman answered the door and let them inside where they found Rogers unconscious, according to court documents.
Both women were taken to a local hospital where Rogers was pronounced dead. The woman was treated and released from the hospital, police said.
The injured woman told investigators Johnson sexually assaulted both women, then tied them up, beat them with household objects and stabbed them, according to court documents.
At some point the woman lost consciousness, but her 8-year-old daughter, who was at the home during the attack, managed to cut the rope from the woman’s wrists and call 911.
During a search of the home, police found two knives believed to be used in the assault, according to a search warrant.
Johnson was booked into Oklahoma County jail and was being held Tuesday without bail. Charges have not been filed against Johnson in the case.
He has spent more than 20 years in prison for convictions of rape, kidnapping and robbery, according to the Oklahoma Department of Corrections. His latest term for kidnapping and robbery ended in February 2013.
