    This is actually the town I grew up in. Thanks to Onstar for helping the police track Braylee's car and then assisting state and local law enforcement in disabling the car!

    I follow an "In Memory" page for Braylee on FB and it was stated there that a competency hearing has been scheduled for August 19. Strangely, I haven't been able to find anything else about this in the news.

    I wondered that, so I went ahead and checked out the court records. This is what I found:

    A Velma man charged with first-degree murder has again been found mentally competent to stand trial.

    Friday's ruling by Judge Joe Enos in Stephens County District Court is the fourth time that 23-year-old Miles Sterling Bench has been found competent for trial for the death of 16-year-old Braylee Rae Henry...

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

    The impending trial of Miles Bench, who faces a possible death penalty in the slaying of a Velma teen-ager, has been postponed until January.

    District Judge Joe Enos granted the continuance at the request of Bench’s attorneys, District Attorney Jason Hicks said Saturday...

    Defense attorneys have filed a motion notifying the court they plan to raise an insanity defense in the case.

    A man accused of murdering a teenage girl in Velma more than two years ago now knows when he'll get his day in court.

    Miles Bench will face a judge and jury on February 9 at the Stephens County Courthouse.

    Incriminating statements made by Miles Bench in the days following his arrest for the slaying of 16-year-old Braylee Henry are now the subject of a fierce courtroom battle between prosecutors and defense attorneys for the long-haired, bearded defendant.

    Thus far, prosecutors are winning...

    Russell already has ruled that Henry’s immediate family members will be allowed to wear ‘grief buttons’ bearing the teenager’s likeness. He also has said prosecutors can show jurors a photo of Henry, though he limited its size to 8-by-10 inches.

    Among the statements, Bench’s attorneys hope to suppress his statement, “I think I killed someone,” after he was ordered out of his car at gunpoint and arrested by Custer County deputies soon after the murder...

    Prosecutors further state the statement rebuts defense attorneys’ claims of insanity.

    A motion to require the doctor who performed the autopsy on Velma teenager Braylee Henry to attend the pretrial hearings for her alleged killer, Miles Bench, is set for a hearing at 10 a.m. today...

    Prosecutors believe Dr. Inas Yacoub of the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, who performed Henry’s autopsy, will testify that Henry experienced intense pain and suffering before her death, to support the state’s contention the teenager’s death was “heinous, atrocious and cruel.” Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

    The submission of crime scene photos is also a subject of heated debate between the prosecution and defense.

    Jury selection will begin Monday for the first-degree murder trial of Miles Bench...

    Stephens County Court Clerk Margaret Cunningham said about 400 potential jurors were summoned for this jury term, which is about 50 more than usual. Jury selection is expected to last for about a week, followed by opening statements from prosecutors and the defense.

    "
    The wrongful death suit against Miles Bench and the owners of the Tee Pee Totem convenience store filed after the death of Velma teenager Braylee Henry is halted until March.

    Bench, 23, is charged with first-degree murder for allegedly murdering Henry in the back room of the convenience store in June, 2012.


    Henry’s parents, Billy Ray Henry and Gina Renee Henson, filed a suit seeking more than $75,000 in compensation for damage caused from their child’s death."
