FROM STAFF REPORTS

Teen charged

as adult in death

— A 16-year-old boy accused of fatally stabbing his girlfriend with a butcher knife for wanting to end their relationship was charged Wednesday as an adult. Michael Anthony Ray, of Marlow, is charged in Stephens County District Court with first-degree murder in the death of Alyssa Dawn Wiles, 14. Ray is being held in the Stephens County jail without bail, Assistant District Attorney Greg Steward said. A second suspect, a 14-year-old boy, is in custody at the Lawton Juvenile Center. The knife came from the 14-year-old boy's house, Police Chief Dan Ford said. The younger teen said he was at the Wiles residence serving as a lookout, Ford said. He declined to identify the boy because he hasn't been charged. Ford said the victim was stabbed numerous times in the upper torso Monday at her family's house. The teens said they buried the knife. “During the stabbing, the knife handle broke. We have not recovered all the pieces of the knife,” Ford said.
