A man's body was found Monday in an abandoned trailer south of Ponca City, and a suspect was arrested in connection with his death, authorities said.

The body, which has not been identified, had been in an old trailer in the 2800 block of S River Road in Kay County for several weeks, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Jessica Brown said.

The Kay County sheriff's office requested the OSBI's assistance with the homicide investigation.

Jared James Bales, 32, of Ponca City, was arrested on a murder complaint, Brown said.

The state medical examiner's office will determine the man's name and his cause of death.
