Lawton man accused of shooting a cab driver last year will stand trial

Posted: Updated:

Lawton,Okla_A Lawton man accused of shooting a cab driver in a botched robbery last November will stand trial.
David Stamper appeared in a Comanche county courtroom last week and waived his right to a preliminary hearing.

Prosecutors say Stamper and a juvenile accomplice tried to rob the driver, Robert Gillan, but ended up shooting him. Stamper told investigators that during the robbery, his accomplice handed him a gun and told him to kill Gillan. Gillan was shot once in the neck but survived.

Stamper is charged with robbery and shooting with intent to kill. He's expected to stand trial in May.
