SALLISAW — A judge in eastern Oklahoma has postponed scheduled a jury trial for a Sallisaw man charged in a 1997 killing.
Sequoyah County District Judge Jeff Payton delayed setting the trial for 39-year-old Rex Richard Robbins because Robbins’ attorney wasn’t in court Thursday. A local newspaper reports that Payton will consider the matter in June.
Robbins is charged in the beating death of 28-year-old Mitchell Dayne Nixon. Robbins is being held without bond in the Sequoyah County jail and has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Authorities found Nixon’s body on Oct. 9, 1997, near Sallisaw. Agents discovered a bloody rock next to Nixon’s head.
Robbins wasn’t arrested until last year after Sequoyah
TULSA (AP) — An endangered siamang has been born at the Tulsa Zoo.
A siamang is a primate native to rainforests in Malaysia and Indonesia. The Tulsa Zoo says a female siamang named Sophie gave birth to a baby on Feb. 10.
It’s the first siamang to be born at the Tulsa Zoo in 23 years and the 14th siamang birth since the zoo began exhibiting the species in 1968.
The baby siamang’s sex is not yet known. It will remain in an off-exhibit with its parents as they continue to bond.
Siamangs spend most of their time in trees and the arboreal siamang is listed as endangered because of the destruction of forests in their home ranges.

So it was only appropriate that he was on the Eastern Flyer on Sunday, the train's first journey from Sapulpa to the Oklahoma City area as state Transportation Department officials review four proposals to purchase the rail line.
The train departed from Sapulpa at 8 a.m., and by 7:30 a.m. a long line of excited passengers were wrapped around a tent in the middle of an empty field near Sapulpa City Golf Course, waiting to pick up their tickets.
