An Oklahoma City man is in jail today, The Oklahoman reports, after being accused of murdering a man who commented on his girlfriend's Facebook pictures.

Twenty-year-old Antwion Courtez Martin has been charged with the murder of 48-year-old Edmond James Tyree. Tyree commented "damn" on a picture that Martin's girlfriend, Sharda Perkins, shared on her Facebook page. The picture Tyree commented on was of Perkins in a bathing suit.

Martin and Tyree reportedly quarreled over Tyree's comment before the murder. Martin himself admitted to "having words" with the deceased. Martin was identified by Michael Joel McHale, a friend of Tyree's who was also wounded in the attack.

Since her boyfriend's arrest, Perkins has made posts on her Facebook page proclaiming Martin's innocence and her faith that they will soon be reunited.
