Miles Bench Sentenced to Death Row

Lawton, Oklahoma - The Stephens County man convicted of murdering Velma teen Braylee Henry is headed to death row.

24-year-old Miles Bench was formally sentenced on Wednesday. In March, a jury recommended Bench be put to death for the 2012 murder, and a Stephens County judge agreed.

Bench's attorneys asked for a new trial before sentencing, but the judge denied the request. 

Bench will be transported to the state penitentiary in McAlester
