CLAREMORE, Okla. (AP) - A Claremore man is charged with a misdemeanor count of jury tampering in a recent murder trial.

The district attorney’s office said Wednesday that an arrest warrant was issued for 22-year-old Christian Allen Cargill. Rogers County jail officials said Cargill was not in custody and court records don’t list an attorney for him.

An affidavit alleges Cargill told an alternate juror during the October murder trial of Vance Wright that he should vote not guilty in the case. First Assistant District Attorney Larry Edwards said the alternate juror reported the incident and was removed from the panel.

Wright was convicted of first-degree murder in the 2011 death of Kelsey Bray and jurors recommended a sentence of life in prison with the possibility of parole. Sentencing is set for Dec. 15.
