CHICKASHA — Prosecutors say they’ll seek the death penalty for a man charged in the death of the daughter of a Norman deputy police chief.

Assistant District Attorney Cortnie Siess said her office has filed a bill of particulars seeking the death penalty for Steven Thompson.

Thompson is charged with first-degree murder for the death of Sara Maisano, who was the daughter of Norman Deputy Police Chief Jim Maisano. A local newspaper reports that prosecutors filed the bill of particulars Thursday after Thompson entered a not guilty plea.

Thompson is set to go on trial Jan. 26.

Three witnesses testified during last month’s preliminary hearing, including a friend of Maisano’s who testified that Thompson struck her repeatedly before he hit Maisano at a home in the town of Amber. has disabled the comments for this article.
