2 ordered to trial in slaying of former sheriff’s son

The Associated Press - August 11, 2019 8:27 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Two Oklahoma City men are being ordered to stand trial on first-degree murder charges in the fatal shooting of the son of a former southeastern Oklahoma sheriff.
The Oklahoman reports that an Oklahoma County judge on Friday ruled that 22-year-old Jonate Jefferson and 22-year-old Elijah Wood will stand trial on charges in the March 15th attempted robbery and shooting death of 19-year-old Jake McLain, of Idabel.
Both Jefferson and Wood have pleaded not guilty.
Prosecutors say that McLain was fatally shot during a drug deal outside an apartment complex less than 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) south of the Oklahoma state capitol in Oklahoma City.
McLain was the son of former McCurtain County Sheriff Scott McLain, who was defeated for re-election in 2016.
