Jordan Neuwirth in court on Friday

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla_Jordan Neuwirth of Lawton will be tried on charges of assault and battery with a deadly weapon. He will also be tried on larceny of an automobile.

The 22 year old Lawton man was in Comanche County District Court Friday for his preliminary hearing. Carter County Judge Thomas Baldwin heard the case because all of the Comanche County judges and prosecutors have recused themselves from the case.

The man Neuwirth is accused of shooting in July, 21 year old Ryan Mosley, took the stand today. Neuwirth is accused of leaving Mosley wounded and then stealing his car. After hearing the evidence, the judge determined there was enough evidence for Neuwirth to be tried.

Neuwirth was found and arrested in Denver, Colorado, on August 8th and returned to Comanche County on the 16th. He is being held under a $150,000 bond.

No trial date has been set. Defense attorney John Zelbst said they're waiting for a judge out of Oklahoma City to be appointed for the trial.
