A group of people accused in a Midwest City prostitution ring appeared Tuesday at a preliminary hearing in Oklahoma County District Court.

The court date was the first of two preliminary hearings for the 11 defendants charged with racketeering and pandering.

Facing charges are Sherry Blue, 23; Kenneth D. Carrethers, 28; Vincent Lee Colbert, 31; Ashley Dawn Coley, 26; Joleen Kathryn Eppenstein, 23; Taylor Monique Fife, 23; Peter Westlee Graham, 32; Rebecca Angelina Graham, 33; Amy Kelly Musick, 30; Tameika Lavonne Ward, 23; and Samuel John Anthony Young, 20.

Southeast Oklahoma County developer Ray Pelfrey originally was charged. Pelfrey, 65, owned the building where the alleged prostitution business operated.

The state dropped the charges, and Pelfrey will testify in the case, according to District Attorney spokeswoman Debra Forshee.

Pelfrey owns hundreds of properties but doesn't manage all the day-to-day operations, his attorney Lou Keel said.

"He first became aware that that business existed when city officials alerted him to the complaints, Keel said. "He didn't even know they were there.
