Elvaker to stand trial

Lawton_A 51-year-old man has been ordered to stand trial on a first-degree murder charge in the January death of a Lawton man.

Comanche County Special Judge Ken Harris on Tuesday ordered Rickie Ray Elvaker to stand trial in the death of 28-year-old Derrick Farr.  Farr's body was discovered by a motorist. The state medical examiner ruled he had died of blunt force trauma to the head.  Police say blood samples taken from Elvaker's truck were matched to Farr and surveillance video at a gas station shows the two men together the night before Farr's body was found.

Elvaker remains in jail. He's expected to be arraigned next week.
