CUSTER COUNTY, Oklahoma -

Testimony has begun for the prosecution to determine who is responsible for the 2012 death of Weatherford teen Jaray Wilson.

On Wednesday, witnesses who knew Wilson spoke. Also speaking was one man who claimed to have spoken with Wilson moments before her disappearance.

State prosecutors used their witnesses in hopes to sway the jury that 20-year-old Tucker McGee killed Wilson on Oct. 14, 2012.

McGee sat silent throughout the hearing without any expression, even when prosecutors presented a likely key piece of evidence; text Messages between Wilson and her friend Trey John.

The messages were dated the day Wilson disappeared.

Wilson's messages were colored in yellow. John's were colored in blue. At one point in their conversation you can see John ask Wilson, "With who?" Asking who she was with. Wilson responded, "Cody and Tucker."

Other text messages between Wilson and John stated Wilson told John she is in the "middle of nowhere" and was "sketched out."

Wilson was missing for nearly 14 months before her remains were discovered then identified in January 2014, after an informant told authorities McGee shot and killed Wilson and then buried her body.

Over 20 members Wilson's family were also present at the hearing. They too remained silent, but did wear special buttons with Jaray's picture; the same one the family put on billboards and fliers while they searched for Jaray.

Private investigator Darcie Parton-Scoon came to support the Wilson family for a trial that expected to last nearly two weeks.

Two other men are connected to this case. Both are charged with an accessory after the fact.

Caleb Mclemore is currently serving a 25-year sentence and Cody Godfrey is expected to get probation.
