POTEAU — An Oklahoma man has been bound over for trial on two first-degree murder counts in the death of a pregnant woman.

A LeFlore County judge ruled Tuesday there was sufficient evidence for Christopher Kenyon Simpson to be bound over for trial in the death of 20-year-old Ka'Loni Flynn of Fort Smith, Ark., and her fetus.

Prosecutors allege that Simpson shot Flynn after she told him she was pregnant with his child. Simpson's attorney Warren Gotcher argued that prosecutors shouldn't be able to introduce cell-phone records that placed Simpson in the area where Flynn was found dead because authorities didn't have a warrant.

But prosecutors say authorities searched Flynn's cell phone records, not Simpson's, to get the information.

A local newspaper reports that arraignment is set for Jan. 2.
