POTTAWATOMIE COUNTY, Oklahoma -

Pottawatomie County prosecutors are lining up victims to testify against a man accused of killing a man in September 2010, and raping the man's girlfriend.

Glendon Gouker will be tried for first-degree murder in January 2013, and prosecutors are pushing for the death penalty in the case. New court documents reveal the horror his victims experienced.

Ethan Walton, 19, and his girlfriend went to Gouker's home near Prague to sell a piece of property. Prosecutors say while Walton's girlfriend waited in the car, Gouker bound Walton with handcuffs and tape, and beat him to death. Prosecutors say Gouker then lured Walton's girlfriend into the outbuilding where Walton was lying, put a gun to her head and raped her.

The woman managed to escape and run, naked, down the street to a neighbor and beg for help. Walton's body was later found stuffed in a 55-gallon drum on Gouker's property.

The district attorney says Gouker has a history of sexual violence against women dating back 25 years, and that makes him a continuing threat to society. At least three women -- including Walton's girlfriend -- are expected to testify against Gouker. One is a woman from Wisconsin who says she was kidnapped and raped while walking home from a grocery store in November 1990. A DNA hit linked Gouker to the crime in September 2011. Another woman says Gouker molested her when she was 12 years old.

Gouker's sister, Michelle, will also testify against him. She was also arrested in the Walton murder case, and pleaded guilty two months ago to her role in the attack. She was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Michelle Gouker is expected to testify how Glendon Gouker molested and raped her on numerous occasions, and even fathered her children. She is also expected to testify that her brother would brag to her about killing people and committing other crimes, including firebombing a shopping center in Wisconsin.

Gouker is being held at the Pott. County Jail without bond.
