LAWTON, Okla._A drug deal gone bad led to the killing of a Lawton teenager last April. That's what a witness told the court today in preliminary hearing for Kenshari Graham, who's accused of second-degree murder in the death of Alec McGlory. McGlory was killed last April in an apartment complex parking lot in west Lawton. Graham is the accused triggerman.
At first ,Graham's attorney tried to get the hearing pushed back--- saying he was not given all evidence from the state. He claimed he was just given phone records hours before the hearing. The state said he asked for them on Friday, they retrieved the documents with in an hour and he failed to pick them up until before today's hearing. Judge Kenny Harris denied that motion so the state brought out its first witness. Graham used to live with the witness and his mother. The witness says he was with Graham, and Devin Fulner, who's also been charged in this case, on the day of the shooting. He says the three spent that evening together at a friend's apartment smoking marijuana they then left because the witness was hungry. Graham and Fulner asked to be taken to an apartment to meet up with some girls, the witness didn't mind and had a friend just two complexes down he would go visit when he dropped them off. That's when things went south. The witness says he walked in to his friend's place and immediately heard multiple gun shots in the direction he had dropped the two off. The witness says he left the friends place and heard footsteps and then saw Graham. Graham kept yelling "bro we are going to jail." but never went into details until the night. Graham told him that night he was buying marijuana from Alec McGlory and McGlory had his gun on the dashboard of his car. Fulner came up to the car hopping around and it startled McGlory who rolled down the window and pointed the gun at Fulner.Graham told the witness Fulner had trouble getting his gun out of his shorts and then started shooting aimlessly--- that's when graham pulled out his gun and shot McGlory in the ribs, killing him. At the end of today's testimony Judge Harris ruled there was enough evidence to put Graham on trial for Mcglory's murder. Graham's will now be back in court on January 14th where they will set a date for his trial.
Devin Fulner, the other suspect in McGlory's killing, is set to begin his jury trial on Monday, January 27th at 9 am.
