Decision on Garland Allen Murder Trial Status Remains to be Made

An Altus man authorities say led them to his wife's body years after he killed and buried her body, has been evaluated for his competency to stand trial, but a decision on his trial status won't be made until the review of that evaluation.

That review had been set for Monday afternoon, but the report was not available so it has been reset for May 12.

Garland Allen is charged with second degree murder of his wife Tracy, which could be amended to first-degree.

Altus Police Chief Tim Murphy says in December, Allen led authorities to his wife's remains in a remote area north of Snyder, near Tom Steed Reservoir.

District Attorney John Wampler believes Tracy may have been killed in 2001 during an argument in Allen's trailer.
