Lawton man faces first-degree manslaughter charges after argument turned fatal

Lawton_Police say thirty-one-year-old Wilburn Michael Jackson, of Lawton, faces first degree manslaughter charges for the Wednesday morning homicide of his 52-year-old uncle Bobby Jackson.  The Oklahoma Medical Examiner's Office says the preliminary cause of death was traumatic asphyxia, strangulation, and blunt-force trauma to the head.

Wilburn's father, Freddie Jackson, told 7News his son assaulted his brother during a drunken argument and punched him repeatedly.  At the time of the attack, Bobby said he couldn't breathe, and Freddie says he pulled Wilburn off of his brother and took him to a different room.  Once there, he says he heard Bobby fall to the ground.

Police say they arrived and performed CPR on Bobby Jackson before taking him to the hospital, but could not revive him.  The hospital declared him dead on arrival.
