ENID — A jury has been seated in the trial of a man accused of killing another man in an Enid bar fight.

A local newspaper reports that opening statements are scheduled for Tuesday morning in the trial of Grady Wayne Lewallen Jr.

Garfield County prosecutors have charged Lewallen with first-degree murder, or, in the alternative, second-degree murder.

He's accused in the February death of 53-year-old Robert Abraham, who was found unresponsive in a bathroom at The Mine Co. Abraham was pronounced dead at an Enid hospital.

Authorities say Lewallen told police Abraham attacked him when he kicked in a bathroom stall door. According to an affidavit in the case, Lewallen said he kicked Abraham back.

Lewallen says Abraham fell, and he kicked him five to six times.
