Lawton murder trial update

New information in a Lawton murder case.  The state is trying to combine the murder trials of Kelsey Campbell and Jade Burns.

You'll remember the two teens are charged with the brutal beating death of 82-year-old Johnny Thorp.  That happened a year ago, this past Tuesday.

Their accomplice Ricky Gallegos pled guilty to murder in February.  He's serving life without parole.

Both girl's trials are set to begin in June.  Again, the state is now trying to combine them.
