MIDWEST CITY, Oklahoma -- A Midwest City man will stand trial for the murder of Demarco Lenox in July of last year.

Stephen Dewayne Harris appeared in court Tuesday morning for a hearing to determine if there was enough probable cause for him to stand trial for killing Lenox after leaving a nightclub in Spencer.

In an affidavit filed with the court, an Oklahoma County Deputy Sheriff investigator said Harris is a known gang member of the "Murder One Bloods" and was identified through police intelligence, as well as his MySpace account. Witnesses told investigators the victim and defendant got into a verbal argument at the club and Harris told Lenox, "next time I see you, you'll be dead blood."

The investigator then said witnesses told them how a white Cadillac followed the victim's car at a high rate of speed from the club, caught up to them in the 10600 block of N.E. 36th Street, and Harris fired one round from a handgun, hitting Lenox in the head.

Police officers from the Spencer Police Department identified Harris as being with Lenox at Club Starz prior to the shooting.

Lenox's mother told investigators a week later that he had passed away from his injuries.

Attorneys for Harris and prosecutors are expected back in court next month so a date for the trial can be set.
