Murder Case To Be Put On Trial Docket

A Texoma woman charged with murder is facing a trial.
24-year-old Brittany Wetzel appeared in a pre-trial hearing this morning.
The Wichita County Court Administrator's Office says the court moved to get Wetzel's case on a jury trial docket but a date has not been set.

Prosecutors say on April 24th Wetzel struck Timothy Eric Powell with her car in the 2000 block of 9th street.
Police say Wetzel admitted to hitting Powell but says he had assaulted her earlier and she thought he was going to get a gun and shoot her.
