Scattered showers and storms could become strong to severe this afternoon into the evening. Primary threats are large hail and heavy rainfall causing flooding in poor drainage areas. Damaging winds are included as well and an isolated tornado possibility is very low but not eliminated.
ANTLERS, OK - The case against a former Pushmataha County district judge accused of manslaughter is going to an appellate court.
Authorities say 75-year-old Doyle Edward Blythe of Antlers was driving with a suspended license two years ago when six-year-old Riley Harralson rode his bike down a hill and crashed into Blythe's SUV. The accident killed Harralson.
Blythe's trial was set to begin tomorrow, but the case now goes to the court of criminal appeals.
In a separate case, court documents show Harralson's family is also suing Blythe.
