A Purcell man who admitted injecting his teenage sister with methamphetamine twice before she died last month was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder, records show.

Chance Alan Wilson, 28, told investigators that he gave 16-year-old Saleda Wilson “back-to-back shots” within 10 minutes of each other on the morning of July 7, according to a probable cause affidavit filed with the charge in Oklahoma County District Court.

Wilson is serving time in the McClain County jail on unrelated charges, police said.

The girl's father discovered her body the same day at a residence in the 1400 block of North Court. Oklahoma City police found the girl lying on her back in the bathtub/shower with wet hair and clothing, according to the affidavit.

Police investigators said a toxicology report showed Wilson “had a large amount of methamphetamine in her system which is the likely cause of death.”

A spokeswoman for the state medical examiner said Monday the manner and cause of death have not been determined because the toxicology report is pending.

A witness told investigators he and Chance Wilson injected methamphetamine together the night of July 6, and said Chance Wilson injected Saleda Wilson with meth once that night and twice the next morning, police reported.

Christopher Ferrell said he “witnessed Chance shoot up Saleda with 20 units of meth in her right arm,” and said it was “the first time Saleda had ever shot up to his knowledge,” detective Brian Carter wrote in the affidavit.
