DUNCAN — One of three Oklahoma teenagers charged in the shooting death of a college baseball player from Australia is due in court.

Seventeen-year-old Michael Dewayne Jones is scheduled to appear in Stephens County District Court on Wednesday for a preliminary hearing.

Jones is charged with using a vehicle in the discharge of a weapon and accessory after the fact in the August shooting death of 22-year-old Christopher Lane.

Lane, from Melbourne, was preparing to enter his senior season at East Central University when he was shot as he jogged in Duncan.

Two other teenagers are charged with first-degree murder in the case.

Police have said Jones told authorities the boys were “bored” when they targeted Lane. Autopsy results showed that Lane died from a gunshot wound to the back.
