ENID, Okla. — Enid Police Department made a second arrest early Friday morning in connection to the Aug. 3, 2020, murder of Nestor Garcia Ramirez, 38.

Dorhee Ventura Wofford, 26, was arrested at about 1 a.m. Friday by the FBI and Oklahoma City Police Department and was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on a charge of first degree murder, pending transfer to Garfield County. The arrest came after Enid Police Department obtained a warrant for Wofford's arrest, stemming from its investigation into Ramirez's murder in Enid.

Wofford's arrest came about 36 hours after Enid Police Department executed a search warrant at 325 Sooner Trail. That search led to the arrest late Wednesday of Courtney Renee Sherrill, also known as Courtney Flowers, 25, on complaints of first-degree murder, first-degree burglary and child endangerment.

Ramirez was pronounced dead at 1:45 a.m. Aug. 5 at St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center, after he was shot during an early morning Aug. 3 burglary at his residence in the 1900 block of East Walnut.

Responding officers on Aug. 3 learned two armed men forced their way into the residence and demanded money. While inside, they beat and shot Ramirez, struck a pregnant woman and threatened to shoot several juveniles, according to police. The men robbed the victims of cash and fled the scene before police arrived.

The men were described as two black males, 18 to 22 years old, armed with handguns, wearing all-black clothing, face masks and backpacks, according to police. One of the suspects was described as having a large amount of acne on his face.

The pregnant woman was treated and released at an area hospital for minor injuries. A second woman was present and also received minor injuries when she jumped out a window and escaped the residence during the incident. The juveniles were not physically injured.
