Two men charged with killing a Tulsa bank teller during a robbery will be tried separately. Two other people involved in the crime are still waiting for word on what will happen with them.

21-year old Jeremy Williams and 26-year old Alvin Jordan will face two separate juries in their murder trials. 18-year old Christopher Jordan, the alleged getaway car driver, will have his day in court as well.

Prosecutors say Williams and Alvin Jordan opened fire in the First Fidelity Bank last June. The shots killed bank teller Amber Rogers and wounded two other people. Williams' defense attorney filed a motion for separate trials; he says statements made by Alvin Jordan implicate his client. Jordan's trial will come first; it's scheduled for April 18th. Williams' trial is scheduled to start less than a month later.

Christopher Jordan's trial is scheduled for mid-June, but he could still be tried sooner with one of the two other defendants.

And there's another defendant in the case, she's Dyra Malone who's charged as an accessory in the crime. She goes to court in February.

Accessory charges against a fifth person, Tommy Doyle were dismissed by the judge because of insufficient evidence. Doyle was just released from the Tulsa County jail Monday.
