Man Charged with Murder of Velma Teen to Have Another Competency Hearing

Miles Bench is charged in the death of Braylee Henry.
For the third time, a former Texoma store clerk accused of the brutal murder of a young Velma girl has filed an application for a determination of competency.

Miles Bench has already twice been determined competent to stand trial.

Bench is charged with the murder of 16-year-old Braylee Henry on June 6, 2012, who police say had gone to the store in Velma to buy a soft drink and snack.

Police say Bench attacked Braylee while she was there in the convenience store where he worked in Velma.

Officers found blood in a store room.

A psychologist who had determined Bench was competent last June, later changed her mind and defense attorneys asked that a jury determine his competency.

That jury found he was competent to stand trial.

He and his attorney are due in court to discuss the most recent application tomorrow afternoon.
