Byron Shepard, the defendant accused of shooting and killing Tecumseh Police Officer Justin Terney back in March, was in court Friday for formal setting of a preliminary hearing date.

Shepard, who remains jailed without bond on a charge of first-degree murder, appeared in Pottawatomie County District Court briefly for scheduling of a preliminary hearing, where a judge determines if there is enough evidence for a case to proceed to trial.

Shepard's preliminary hearing was set for Nov. 9.

Another defendant charged in the case, Brooklyn Danielle Williams, 22, was initially scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Aug. 18, but on Friday, her hearing date also was changed to Nov. 9, court records show.

Shepard, 35, was Williams' passenger on the night of a March 26 traffic stop. Williams, of Tecumseh, was reported to be in a relationship with Shepard and the shooting occurred when Shepard allegedly ran from Terney during that late-night traffic stop at Gordon Cooper Drive and Benson Park Road.

Shepard is accused of causing the death of Officer Terney by inflicting mortal wounds when firing a Springfield XD semi-automatic 9 mm pistol into the abdomen and leg of the officer during the traffic stop. Terney underwent surgery but died from his wounds the next morning.

In a dash cam video released by District Attorney Richard Smothermon's office with the filing of Shepard's charges, a seemingly normal traffic stop unfolds, with the officer being kind but becoming suspicious as he believes the passenger, who had no ID, is giving him false names. The stop quickly turned as the suspect, who was later determined to have a felony arrest warrant, ran into the woods.

Officer Terney, 22, deployed his Taser on the suspect with no effect.

At one point, you can hear gunshots. Even though he had been shot twice, Officer Terney returned fire and struck Shepard, who was struck three times in the arm, chest and groin area.

Before being booked into the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center, Shepard was hospitalized at OU Medical Center for treatment of his gunshot wounds.

Smothermon said Shepard gave the officer false names during the traffic stop because he knew he had an outstanding Okfuskee County arrest warrant for knowingly concealing stolen property. That warrant had a $250,000 bond.

Williams, who stayed at the vehicle when Shepard allegedly ran, was initially arrested and booked into jail on a complaint of harboring a fugitive, although the formal charge filed ended up being the second-degree murder count.

Williams remains jailed on a $250,000 bond.
