Bench Trial Will Stay in Stephens County

DUNCAN, Okla.- The Oklahoma man accused of killing a teenager has been denied a motion to move his case to another location.

Miles Bench's attorneys made the request to move the murder trial out of county, claiming he would not get a fair and impartial jury. The judge ruled that the first-degree murder trial will remain in Stephens County. The judge has also ruled to limit comments from the victim's family, and they will not be allowed to make victim impact statements during the sentencing.

Bench is charged with murdering Velma teenager, Braylee Henry, in June of 2012. The court is hearing several motions before the trial begins in February.
