The man sought in connection with the death of a person found in a burning abandoned Birmingham house was arrested in Oklahoma Wednesday night. Youit De Witt Jones, 35, was booked into the Carter County Jail Jail at 11:13 p.m., jail records show. He is being held there on a second-degree robbery charge. No additional details surrounding his arrest there were immediately available. Ardmore police Capt. Claude Henry said they are not releasing additional information because the investigation is ongoing. He referred all additional questions to Birmingham police. Jones has not yet been charged with any crime in relation to the Birmingham homicide earlier this week. Police, however, issued an “urgent” alert for him Tuesday night, describing him as “armed and dangerous.”
