She entered a not guilty plea to the charges on Aug. 20, and waived her preliminary hearing Oct. 3. In a hearing Monday in district court, Judge Jeff Payton put Gray's case on his Dec. 4 sounding docket. Kyle Lewis Brannon, 19, of Muldrow also had a hearing Monday in district court, and Judge Payton set his district court arraignment, on a charge of being an accessory after the fact, for 9 a.m. Dec. 4.
