For the sixth time, the preliminary hearing for a Muldrow woman, charged with conspiracy and other crimes, was continued Tuesday in Sequoyah County District Court in Sallisaw.
“I’m going to pass it one time,” Special District Judge Larry Langley told attorneys Tuesday morning at the beginning of the preliminary hearing for Angela Gray, 41.
Gray is charged with conspiracy, child endangerment by driving under the influence, and selling or furnishing alcoholic beverages to a minor, all felonies. The charges were filed Aug. 31 by the Sequoyah County District Attorney’s office after a mistrial on previous charges.
Gray is accused of allegedly covering up the ATV crash on Sept. 1, 2013, south of Muldrow that left Christian Mayberry with severe brain trauma.
Mayberry and many others were on hand to testify at Tuesday’s preliminary, but Assistant District Attorney Michael Ashworth asked Judge Langley if Gray’s preliminary could be combined with two other defendants in the case, Kyle Brannon and Joey Gray, Angela Gray’s son. Ashworth argued that since all three face the same charges, the witnesses would only be asked to testify once in a combined preliminary hearing rather than three times in three preliminary hearings. Brannon and Gray allegedly helped clean up the area after the ATV crash.
Judge Langley accepted Ashworth’s argument and reset the preliminary hearing, for all three defendants, for 1:30 p.m. May 31.
