Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
CHOCTAW COUNTY, Okla. -- An 86-year-old man accused of murdering his stepdaughter appeared in court Tuesday. Coy Tate of Hugo was in a legal conference Tuesday afternoon for a pretrial hearing.
Tate is charged with first degree murder after investigators say he shot his stepdaughters at his home on Roebuck Lane in Hugo on May 1, killing 63-year-old Jackie Maye Endemano and injuring 57-year-old Debra McKenzie. The daughters were visiting from California.
McKenzie says Tate became agitated when they asked about their mother's medical information. That was when she said Tate opened fire.
