Trial Set in Villanueva Murder Case

COMANCHE CO., Okla_ A trial date has been set for Jose Villanueva, the Lawton man charged with first-degree murder in the shooting and beating death of Charles Tyson last year.

Villanueva appeared in a Comanche County courtroom Thursday and decided to go with a non-jury trial. Police found Tyson's body on a front porch last October.

He'd been shot in the back and brutally beaten in the head. Judge Allen McCall will preside over the trial, which is set for August 15th and 16th.
