The man accused in the murders of two young Weleetka girls, will return to court July 10 in the first-degree murder case of his girlfriend last summer.

Kevin Sweat was scheduled to be arraigned in Okfuskee County Court Tuesday in the death of his girlfriend, Ashley Taylor.  It was continued until July 10, 2012.

Taylor was last seen in July of 2011 after telling a relative she and Sweat were going to Louisiana to get married. Sweat reportedly told authorities he cut Taylor's throat after she tried to kill herself and dumped her body in a lake in Henryetta.

Sweat is also accused of killing Skyla Whitaker, 11, and Taylor Paschal Placker, 13, in 2008.
