POTEAU, Okla. (AP) - A judge has delayed a court appearance for an eastern Oklahoma man accused of beating his father to death.
Timothy Lockaby is charged with first-degree murder in the March death of his father, 77-year-old Arlon Lockaby, who was known by the nickname Buck. A police affidavit alleges that Timothy Lockaby beat his father to death with a wooden cane.
Lockaby was due in court Tuesday but it was delayed until June 4 while his attorneys await copies of police reports. Defense attorney Gretchen Mosley tells the Southwest Times Record that a preliminary hearing for Lockaby will likely be scheduled at the June court date.
Lockaby has pleaded not guilty. He's being held without bond at the LeFlore County jail.
