DUNCAN, Oklahoma — A February trial date has been scheduled for a Velma man charged with first-degree murder in the death of a 16-year-old girl.

KSWO reports (http://bit.ly/1qg9iTr ) that a Feb. 9 trial date was set for 23-year-old Miles Sterling Bench. Bench has pleaded not guilty.

Prosecutors say Bench killed Braylee Henry in June 2012 after she stopped to buy gas at the convenience store where Bench worked.

The girl's body was found in a pasture in Velma near the home of Bench's grandparents, where Bench was living at the time. Bench was arrested near Weatherford where he was found driving Henry's car.

District Attorney Jason Hicks has said he is seeking the death penalty if Bench is convicted.
