Murder trial to start in Comanche County court

The trial for a man charged in the shooting death of a six-year-old boy in Lawton is expected to begin tomorrow.

Maurice Tubbs is charged with first-degree murder in the case.  Police say he and another man fired five shots into a house on the 1800 Block of McKinley during a drive-by.  One of the shots hit and killed six-year-old Hikeem Lambirth, who was asleep on a couch in the home.

Police say they believe the shooting was gang-related.

Again, that trial is set to start tomorrow. As always, you can count on 7News for coverage.
