Death Penalty To Be Sought For Man Accused Of Killing Purcell Girl

PURCELL, Okla. (AP) -- A Purcell man charged with first-degree murder in the gruesome killing of a 10-year-old girl was formally arraigned Wednesday in McLain County District Court.

Kevin Ray Underwood showed no reaction as district Judge Candace Blalock read the charge and set a trial date of May 7th on charges he killed Jamie Rose Bolen as part of a cannibalistic plot.

His only comments were to answer "yes" when asked several times if he knew what it meant to waive his right to a speedy trial.

The judge entered a plea of not guilty on his behalf.

Prosecutors also filed a bill of particulars outlining aggravating circumstances of the crime that they say supports their request for the death penalty if Underwood is convicted.
