An Oklahoma City man accused of beating his ex-girlfriend to death last month has been charged with first-degree murder.
Reginald Arthur Lancaster was arrested May 29 and charged Wednesday in Oklahoma County District Court with murder and assault and battery with a deadly weapon.
Lancaster is accused of beating his ex-girlfriend, Waynetta Roberson, in the parking lot of the Chestnut Square apartments near SE 15 and Sooner Road in Midwest City. He also reportedly stabbed another woman in the parking lot before police arrived, according to a probable cause affidavit filed in the case.
Roberson was taken to OU Medical Center, where she died a short time later. The woman who was stabbed told police that it was Lancaster who attacked them, the affidavit states. Lancaster refused to speak to police after his arrest.
He was being held without bail Thursday in the Oklahoma County jail.
