Charges Filed in Missing Man Case

7-4-05 - The body of an Atoka County man missing for more than a week was found Sunday at the McGee Creek Wildlife Management Area in Atoka County. OHP officials say a friend of the man led them to the body.

Barry Pebworth's body was found around 3:30 p.m. Sunday. The OHP says Marcus Manion called 911 late Saturday night and told authorities he knew where Pebworth's body was. The two men had been camping late last week when Pebworth turned up missing. An extensive search by OHP turned up nothing last week.

Marcus Manion is being held in the Atoka County jail, charged with first degree murder.
