A man accused of killing a teenage boy by shooting and burning his body in 2017 was scheduled to be in a Wagoner County courtroom Monday

Cody Thompson, 25, faces a first-degree murder charge in the death of 15-year-old Brennon Davis. 

Deputies say Thompson worked with Josh Herrington to shoot and kill Davis at a campground in January of 2017.

They believe the two men then set the boy's body on fire.  Deputies think the motive was to keep Davis silent about a possible bank robbery. 

Herrington has already been sentenced to life with the possibility of parole after he pleaded guilty to the crime earlier this year.
