DUNCAN, Okla. (AP) — The first-degree murder trial of a Velma man charged with killing a 16-year-old girl has been delayed until January.

Stephens County District Attorney Jason Hicks says the murder trial of 23-year-old Miles Sterling Bench was postponed at the request of defense attorneys. The defense has said it plans to present insanity as a defense.

Bench is charged with killing 16-year-old Braylee Rae Henry in June 2012 after Henry stopped to buy gas at a convenience store where Bench worked.

Henry’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.
