Butts testified about paying $200 to bail Thompson out of the Oklahoma County jail, where he was being held on complaints of drug possession near a school with intent to distribute. She said she agreed to call 911 and pretend to be King after Thompson pressed her to make the threats.
“He said that he wanted Denise King to feel the way he felt because she put him in jail,” Butts said. “I told him no. He got mad and started yelling at me.”
A judge will decide later this week if there is probable cause to send Thompson to trial.
