 WEATHERFORD, Okla.  -- A Weatherford man charged with first-degree murder has been found dead in Custer County.

   An Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agent says the body of 23-year-old Joel Anthony Boyer was found Wednesday on the porch of a friend's home south of Weatherford.

   OSBI Inspector Stan Florence says foul play is not suspected but Boyer's body has been sent to the state medical examiner's office for an autopsy.

   In the murder case Boyer was accused of providing methadone to Justin Sides the day before Sides was found dead of a methadone overdose last June.
