By  | 

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.
