Oklahoma baseball slaying trial continues

Oklahoma baseball slaying trial continues

Duncan, OK - The case involving the "random" shooting death of an Australian college baseball player in Oklahoma picks back up Tuesday. One of the teenagers charged in the shooting death of the East Central University baseball player is due in court this morning in Duncan, Oklahoma.  

16 year old James Francis Edwards Jr. is being charged with first-degree murder and accessory after the fact in the death of 22-year-old Chris Lane. Lane was shot while jogging along a road in Duncan while visiting his girlfriend's parents back in August. Investigators say he was randomly targeted by "bored'' teenagers. He had been preparing to enter his senior baseball season at ECU in Ada.  

Prosecutors have said they will drop the first-degree murder charge against Edwards if he continues to testify against the two other teens accused of firing the fatal shot and driving the car. If convicted at trial, the other two teens face up to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
