DA claims suspect in Duncan murder tried to reach out to victim's family

James King James King
DUNCAN, Ok (RNN Texoma) -

The Stephens County District Attorney's office has filed a claim saying a murder suspect attempted to contact the victim's family.

James Jackson King was charged in May 2017 with first-degree murder in the death of Cecil Jackson.

According to our partners at the Duncan Banner, the District Attorney's office said King violated a court order after his first appearance and bond hearing. The office said King sent a letter to Jackson's brother by mail, claiming the state was covering up evidence.

A hearing over the DA's motion is set for 1:30 p.m. on Friday May 18.

King's trial has been set for August 2018.
