This is the first news we’ve had on Kevin Ray Underwood in a while…
PURCELL, Oklahoma (AP) — A man accused of killing a 10-year-old girl in what investigators describe as a cannibalistic plot will be tried for first-degree murder, a judge ruled Tuesday.
Prosecutors have said they will seek the death penalty for Kevin Ray Underwood, 26, accused of strangling Jamie Rose Bolin.
After Underwood’s arrest, police and prosecutors revealed grisly details of the crime, saying Underwood raped the girl’s corpse and planned to eat her flesh. A medical examiner’s report released later indicated there were signs of sexual assault, but could not determine if they were inflicted after her death.
I eagerly await to hear the defense’s strategy on this one.
