January Trial Date Set For 2 In Oklahoma Porn Case
SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) -- A district judge in Pottawatomie County has set a Jan. 14 trial date for a former third-grade teacher and an ex-college professor charged with sexually exploiting schoolgirls. District Attorney Richard Smothermon says Judge John Canavan Jr. set the trial date Tuesday for former McCloud teacher Kimberly Crain of Shawnee and retired professor of early childhood development Gary Doby of Bloomsburg, Pa. Smothermon says Crain's attorney, Craig Webb, also announced plans to file a motion to move the trial to another county because of the widespread publicity the case has received. Smothermon says attorneys will argue the motion on Dec. 12. Prosecutors say Crain took photos of young girls while they changed clothes in her classroom and at her home and shared the images with Doby. They have pleaded not guilty.

Judge orders Okla. pastor to trial on murder count
May 25, 2013 19:32 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A judge says the pastor of an Oklahoma City church must stand trial in the shooting death of his son-in-law.
Fifty-three-year old Michael Elder is charged in the death of 27-year-old Gary Davidson last February. Davidson was married to Elder's daughter.
The Oklahoman reports (http://bit.ly/16Wg62Z ) that Judge Ray C. Elliott on Friday ordered Elder to stand trial after Davidson's wife and girlfriend each told different stories. April Davidson said she feared for her life while fighting with Davidson in the front seat of a pickup truck. Judith Chism said Davidson was trying to exit the truck from a rear seat when he was shot.
Defense lawyers have argued Davidson fired the gun in self-defense.
Elder is senior pastor at The Cross Baptist Church. He was being held without bail.
