CHICKASHA — A preliminary hearing is scheduled to begin Tuesday for a Grady County man charged with first-degree murder for the shooting death of the daughter of a Norman deputy police chief.

Steven Thompson is charged in the June 2013 shooting death of Sara Maisano. Prosecutors alleged that Thompson fatally shot Maisano at his home in Amber.

Thompson is also charged with assaulting his fiance during the same incident. Maisano was the daughter of Norman Deputy Police Chief Jim Maisano.

Grady County District Attorney Jason Hicks told a local newspaper that Thompson’s hearing is set for Tuesday in Chickasha. The case has been continued several times and Tuesday’s hearing is the first opportunity for prosecutors to present evidence in the case.
