Life Sentence Thrown Out For Suspect In Murder Of Weatherford Teen

Posted: Updated:

The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has thrown out the life sentence given the suspect charged with the murder of Weatherford teen Jaray Wilson.

The suspect, Tucker McGee, was ten days from his 18th birthday when he is accused of killing Wilson in October 2012. According to the defense, McGee was high on the synthetic drug K2 and was allegedly hallucinating when the murder took place.

McGee was found guilty in April 2015 and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. He could have received the death penalty, but was spared because he was only 17 at the time of the murder.

Wilson’s body was not found until January 2014, when a when a second suspect pleased guilty to Accessory after the Fact and led investigators to the remains.

The case will be sent to district court for re-sentencing.
