DURANT, Okla. -- A man accused of murder in Durant could face the death penalty. The Bryan County District Attorney's Office is seeking the death penalty for 41-year-old Charles Shannon Bussey.

Bussey is charged with first degree murder for his connection with Tristan York's murder.

Authorities say Bussey and another man killed York and dumped his body in Lake Texoma.

Bussey plead not guilty to the charges on Tuesday. His next court date is slated for August.

    Why would Bryan county ask the death penalty when they are part of the problem indirectly? They let the other guy who instigated all this out of jail when he was running from Texas. He had brutally raped a young woman. Bryan county had a helping hand in that murder because they didn't check this guy's background. Talk about casting the first stone. That plea should be rethought. Why not just give him a life sentence? This ought to be investigated from an outside source. Seems convenient to permanently silence this guy. They also let the guy who murdered the key witness go the same morning he killed him. Is Bryan County corrupt? I think they need to be investigated. Something's wrong with that whole picture.
