Nichols Hills doctor waives preliminary hearing in murder case

Murder defendant, Stephen Paul Wolf, stayed calm during a brief court appearance.

The doctor is charged with first-degree murder in his son's death and assault and battery with a deadly weapon in his wife's injuries.

The next step in his case is a pretrial hearing. At a pretrial hearing, a judge meets with attorneys to schedule the trial. Attorneys sometimes announce at pretrial hearings that the case will be resolved through a plea agreement.

No agreement has been reached in Wolf's case.

Wolf was in court only about 10 minutes Friday and stayed calm. He has become emotional other times in court. A state psychologist in January warned he is likely to wail loudly at times during legal proceedings because of the difficulty he has dealing with his son's death.

The doctor also is facing a civil lawsuit filed by his wife.
