DA: Evidence, not race, determined charges in jogger's slaying

(Continued)

DUNCAN, Okla. —

The two teenagers charged with first-degree murder could get life without parole if convicted. Jones could also get a life prison term, but he would be eligible for parole in 45 years, under Oklahoma law.

Sheriff Wayne McKinney said the teenagers are being held in cells isolated from each other at the Stephens County Jail. He said this protocol was for security reasons and to prevent them from collaborating with each other.

Hicks said he has not yet decided if the youths will be tried separately or together. He said details were being worked out for them to be represented by public defenders if they cannot afford their own lawyers. Not guilty pleas were entered for all three at their initial court appearance.

Details for this story were provided by the Duncan, Okla., Banner.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
