A man has been charged with murder in the death of Weatherford teenager Jaray Wilson.

Tucker McGee, 19, was arraigned Friday morning, and has been charged with first-degree murder. A judge has denied bond for McGee.

McGee was arrested on Tuesday, December 17, after agents with the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics received a tip from an informant.

According to court documents, that informant and McGee were the last to be seen with Wilson before she was reported missing.

The informant provided information leading agents to an area a couple miles north of the Weatherford Airport. They discovered skeletal remains there Tuesday, which are believed to belong to Wilson.

According to an affidavit released on Friday, the informant told agents he saw McGee shoot Wilson and hide her body at that location. The next day, they went back to that location to bury her body further into the woods in the same area.

Authorities say they monitored conversations between McGee and the informant, and confirmed their belief that McGee was involved in Wilson's murder.

Another person involved in the murder, Caleb McLemore, told authorities that McGee admitted to shooting and killing Wilson, according to court documents.

McLemore said he gave McGee and the informant a ride to the burial location on Oct. 15, 2012, so that McGee could bury Wilson's body. McLemore described the location he took McGee to, the same location where the human remains were later found.

According to court documents, McGee was reported to have access to a .22 caliber pistol, and that he had used the pistol to murder Wilson. Investigators say McGee's father had a pistol matching the description, and it was missing from the location where his father had last seen it at.

Wilson was 16 years old when she went missing on October 15, 2012.
