A man sought by Tulsa police after he allegedly threatened to kill his ex-wife on several occasions has been arrested.
Cory Ford Kapple, 31, was charged in October with feloniously pointing a firearm, first-degree burglary, domestic assault and battery in the presence of a minor child, possession of a firearm after a felony conviction and three counts of violating a protective order in two cases, Tulsa County District Court filings show.
He was named the Tulsa Police Department’s “Most Wanted” fugitive on Monday.
Kapple’s ex-wife was granted an emergency protective order in August. She asserts Kapple choked her and told her he was murdering her in March, court documents show.
Prosecutors maintain Kapple violated the order by contacting his ex-wife at two of their children’s school functions, allegedly telling her he’d been in her backyard the previous for four nights and that he would slit her throat on one occasion. He’s also accused of threatening her with a pistol.
Kapple was arrested at 5:15 p.m. Monday. He is being held at the Tulsa Jail in lieu of $428,000.
He pleaded guilty to armed robbery in 1998 and knowingly concealing stolen property in 2003. A 2009 domestic assault and battery charge filed against him was dismissed after a prosecution witness failed to appear, records show.
