A Choctaw County man has been arrested for allegedly tying up a Soper man and severely beating him. KXII is also reporting that a grave had been dug for the victim but he managed to escape. Billy Samis has been charged with Attempted Murder. He had previously been convicted of assault and battery with a deadly weapon and was awaiting sentencing next month. Authorities say Samis wasn’t the only person involved in Saturday night’s incident and at least one more arrest is likely.
