DA: Evidence, not race, determined charges in jogger's slaying

(Continued)

DUNCAN, Okla. —

The two teenagers charged with first-degree murder could get life without parole if convicted. Jones could also get a life prison term, but he would be eligible for parole in 45 years, under Oklahoma law.

Sheriff Wayne McKinney said the teenagers are being held in cells isolated from each other at the Stephens County Jail. He said this protocol was for security reasons and to prevent them from collaborating with each other.

Hicks said he has not yet decided if the youths will be tried separately or together. He said details were being worked out for them to be represented by public defenders if they cannot afford their own lawyers. Not guilty pleas were entered for all three at their initial court appearance.

Details for this story were provided by the Duncan, Okla., Banner.
