LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - Prosecutors have filed Bobbie Willis’ autopsy in the case against James Jacobs Junior Monday.

The Medical Examiner determined that Willis’ death was caused by multiple stab wounds and strangulation.

The report says she was stabbed a total of nine times, in the head, chest, and back.
