Arraignment set for man charged in teen's death

MIAMI - FEBRUARY 02: A judges gavel rests on top of a desk in the courtroom of the newly opened Black Police Precinct and Courthouse Museum February 3, 2009 in Miami, Florida. The museum is located in the only known structure in the nation that was designed, devoted to and operated as a separate station house and municipal court for African-Americans. In September 1944, the first black patrolmen were sworn in as emergency policemen to enforce the law in what was then called the "Central Negro District." The precinct building opened in May 1950 to provide a station house for the black policemen and a courtroom for black judges in which to adjudicate black defendants. The building operated from 1950 until its closing in 1963. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images) Photo: Image by Getty Images

Arraignment set for man charged in teen's death

CREATED Jul 21, 2014

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.
