Arraignment Set for Man Charged in Teen's Death

ARAPAHO, Okla. (AP) — A formal arraignment is scheduled for an Oklahoma man charged in the death of a Weatherford teenager.

Tucker McGee is due in court Monday afternoon for an arraignment on first-degree murder charges in the death of JaRay Wilson. The 16-year-old disappeared in 2012 and her body was found last December in a shallow grave.

A probable cause affidavit filed in Custer County alleges McGee shot Wilson with a .22 caliber pistol, and an autopsy found that Wilson died from two gunshot wounds to the head.

Oklahoma City television station KOKH reports that a juvenile who reportedly led authorities to Wilson's body will receive a plea deal in exchange for his cooperation.
