Tulsa Teen Charged With Murder Bound Over For Trial

TULSA, Oklahoma -

A judge ruled a teenager accused of murder and rape will stand trial.

The judge listened to five witnesses Thursday before deciding Deonte Green, 16, will face a jury for all 21 felonies he's charged with.

Multiple witnesses testified who said they encountered Green during his October crime spree.

That includes an 81-year-old woman who testified Green raped her, and the wife of Shane Anderson - the Broken Arrow teacher who prosecutors say Green shot and killed.

"I don't think you can be human and not watch what was there in court and have your heart absolutely break. I think everyone in there knows how awful this was for each of those folks who testified," Assistant District Attorney Kevin Gray said.

Darcie Anderson said Green got into their home through the open garage. She said he had a gun and eventually got into a scuffle with her husband while she protected their children by locking them in the master bathroom. 

Moments later, Anderson testified she heard a gunshot and went into the living room to find her husband lying on the floor, motionless.

The elderly woman said Green raped her before he went to the Anderson home. She identified Green in the courtroom as the "kid" who came into her home, saying he wanted "money, guns and drugs," before taking her into the master bedroom to "ask her questions."

The woman testified Green covered her face so she couldn't see anything, and then raped her.

The defense argued against all the claims, saying none of the witnesses could clearly see Green's face since he was wearing a hoodie.

"They're just trying to poke holes. It's what they had, it's the only thing they had and it's what they were going with. And that's fine," Gray said.

Green's attorney and family said they fully believe he is innocent.

Green pleaded not guilty October 9th.

He is currently being held without bond in the Tulsa County jail. His arraignment has been set for December 11.
