A Purcell man accused of injecting his 16-year-old sister with a fatal dose of methamphetamine will face trial, a judge ruled Monday.

Chance Alan Wilson, 28, is charged with first-degree murder in the July 7 death of Saleda Wilson. The girl's cause of death was methamphetamine toxicity, the state medical examiner ruled.

The girl's father discovered her body at a residence in the 1400 block of N Court. Oklahoma City police found her lying on her back in a bathtub with wet hair and clothing.

Chance Wilson admitted giving the girl “back to back” shots within 10 minutes of each other on the day she died and then driving to Norman with his girlfriend, a police investigator testified at Wilson's preliminary hearing.

A man detained at the scene told police he injected meth with Chance Wilson on the night of July 6 and said he watched the defendant inject his sister twice the next morning, the detective testified.

Christopher Ferrell took the stand, but refused to cooperate and was threatened with contempt after cursing at the judge and the prosecutor. Ferrell was removed from the courtroom and did not return.
