NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – An 18-year-old Lexington man has been formally charged with first-degree murder in connection with a drive-by shooting in Moore that killed a 14-year-old girl.

Court records show that Cody Dallas Delano was charged Friday in the Nov. 29 shooting that killed Railena Rhodes. Police say Rhodes was shot in the neck while in the bedroom of her home.

An affidavit filed in the case says Delano had been at a party at the home and left after getting into a fight with others at the party. The document says Delano later returned to the home and opened fire from a passing vehicle.

Delano is being held in the Cleveland County jail on $3 million bail. Court records do not list an attorney for him.
