OKLAHOMA CITY -

The preliminary hearing for Chloe Thomas, one of two teens accused in the murder of missing Piedmont teen Annie Hill, took place on Friday.

In that hearing a judge ruled there is enough evidence to move forward with a trial against Thomas, 18, who stands accused of playing a significant role in the death of Annie Hill.

At the hearing, Thomas’ mom, a police investigator and the other teen accused in the murder of Hill took the stand. Also in the courtroom was the family of Annie Hill.

Flanked by friends and family, Hill's mother left the courtroom.

“This was the first time they've heard relatively graphic details of what happened. So it was a very difficult day for them…They’re under a lot of stress and it was very hurtful and it was a very difficult day for them,” said Darcie Parton-Scoon.

Parton-Scoon is the private investigator who helped in the search for Hill when she went missing. On Monday, both she and the rest of the courtroom heard what led to her death and disappearance.

Thomas, 18, is one of the teens accused in Annie's death. Chadd Raymond is the other. Raymond has already accepted a plea deal in the case, and agreed to a 35-year sentence in exchange for his testimony.

Raymond testified both he and Thomas at first wanted to just rob Hill so they could get money to buy drugs. But that robbery went too far and led to them killing her instead.

“My client has always accepted her responsibility as assisting in and hiding the body of Anne Hill, but she from the start says she did not take part in a robbery the murder, any of that,” said Thomas’ attorney, Michael Trevino.

Raymond testified how they lured Hill to his brother's Edmond apartment and then choked and kicked her until she died. He also testified how they disposed of her body and tried to cover up the crime. The entire time Thomas took notes and refused to look at Raymond on the stand and refused to comment on his testimony.

“She disputes about 90 percent of what he said,” Trevino told News 9.

For now, Thomas is being held in the county jail without bond.
