Misha Rivera, 48, was found dead in the living room of her home on W. Centennial Drive Saturday (May 5).

Foster said Kevin Wayne Clayborn, 49, was arrested in Oklahoma City on Thursday at about 11:15 a.m. on capital murder and theft of property charges.

Benton County Circuit Judge Brad Karren declined Wednesday (May 16) to set bond for Clayborn due to the severity of the charges.

Rivera and Clayborn were in a relationship and had been living together, according to Foster. He said information from the investigation led to Clayborn being the initial suspect.

A car registered to Rivera was missing from her house and was later recovered in Van Buren. Police said information led investigators to believe Clayborn was in Oklahoma.


Police found him Thursday morning and he was taken into custody by the Oklahoma City Fugitive Task Force.

Clayborn is being held at the Benton County Jail. His arraignment is set for June 25 in Benton County Circuit Court.
