A man accused of siccing his dogs on an October homicide victim was arrested in east Tulsa on Thursday.

Benjamin Spence had been wanted on a second-degree murder charge in the dog-mauling death of Curtis “C.J.” Wickham since Nov. 10.

Wickham had reportedly gone to find his cellphone at his ex-girlfriend’s house west of downtown Tulsa the morning of Oct. 22 when Spence, who attacked him on the porch, ordered his three dogs to attack him, prosecutors allege in a court affidavit.

Wickham, 26, was the city’s 69th homicide victim of the year.

Spence remains in the Tulsa County jail in lieu of more than $526,000 bail.
