Jailer Testifies in Bench Trial

DUNCAN, Okla. - Thursday was day three of the Miles Bench murder trial in Stephens County, and it also marks a break in the proceedings until Monday.

The judge granted a request from the prosecution to delay further testimony until Monday. They want to put the medical examiner on the stand, and that witness is not available until then.

Thursday, the jury heard an audio recording of Bench speaking to the jailer after he had been arrested for Braylee Henry's murder in Velma in 2012. The jailer also testified about that conversation and told the jury that Bench made statements that he thought he blacked out and that he may have killed someone. He also asked if he could plead insanity, if he had blacked out.

Testimony will resume Monday at 9:00 a.m. If convicted, Bench could face the death penalty.
