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.
WYNNEWOOD, OK - A Garvin County jury has found the man accused of beating another man to death nearly two years ago not guilty.

41-year-old Roland Brent Hately was also arrested in connection with Sim's death.
Hately pleaded guilty to first degree manslaughter in December.
