EUFAULA, Okla. (AP) - A McIntosh County judge will determine whether a teenager convicted of murder under the state's Youthful Offender Act should be sent to prison for violating terms of his sentence.
Nineteen-year-old Berry Joe Williamson was 14 when he shot and killed Rodger Stockton. He was sentenced to 10 years in juvenile custody but can only be held until he's 20 unless he's transferred into the state prison system.
Williamson has been allowed to live in Norman since last summer but is allowed only to go to work and home.
Prosecutors say the violations include leaving home when he wasn't allowed and carrying a switchblade knife.
Stockton was the ex-boyfriend of Williamson's mother. Williamson said he shot the man after the two argued and Stockton said something about his mother.
