Three men in three different high profile cases in Love County court Tuesday

By  | 

MARIETTA, OK -- Two men accused of murders in Love County, and a man authorities say may be connected to the disappearance of a Carter County man and woman, were all in court today.

"At this point, docket call, they announce whether they want a trial or whether they want to enter a plea," says assistant district attorney Tim Burson.

Three men in three different high profile cases were in Love County Tuesday morning for trial management conferences.
Burson says the first one to go before the judge was 65 year old Aaron Carlile.

"Mr. Carlile is not pleading guilty. He's wanting a jury trial," said Burson.

Carlile is accused of shooting and killing his 78 year old father-in-law and his 80 year old sister, Sunny and Almenia Culwell, while they were fixing a fence on family property in rural Love County on May 3rd of last year.

Burson said, "His jury trial begins on June 16th at 9 o'clock."

Burson says 19 year old, Leroy Jefferson, is also not pleading guilty.
OSBI says in December, Leroy and his brother, Jeremy Jefferson, were with their father visiting one of his friends at a Burneyville home, when Leroy picked up a gun and shot several times at Jeremy, killing him.
Jefferson is also facing a charge of escaping from detention in February.

"Mr. Leroy Jefferson has waived his right to a speedy trial. His murder trial will begin in December of 2014," said Burson.

Also in court Tuesday, a man officials say could be connected to the pursuit of missing Carter County residents, Molly Miller and Colt Haynes.
the Oklahoma Highway Patrol say Nipp was the driver who led police on a chase in Love County in July 2013, with Miller and Haynes in the car.
Troopers say that's the last time Miller and Haynes were seen or heard from.
Nipp was in court on charges of endangering others while eluding officers, assault with a dangerous weapon, and unauthorized use of a vehicle...

"James Con Nipp has waived his right to a speedy trial and he will enter a plea of guilty on July the 8th of 2014," said Burson.
