McCurtain Co. cold case murder trial nears end

By  | 

MCCURTAIN COUNTY, OK -- The McCurtain County Court Clerk's Office says the Jerry Meek murder trial is expected to wrap up this week.

The trial began last Monday.

Investigators say 39-year-old Jerry Meek reported his wife 25-year-old Hope Meek missing back in 2002. They collected enough evidence to show she was dead, but never found her body.

Meek was arrested in August of last year. Authorities say his arrest was made possible by a new DA willing to prosecute the case without Hope Meek's body.
