LAS VEGAS (AP) - A former small-town Oklahoma police officer accused of having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl and abducting her from her grandmother’s home in California will face trial in Nevada on felony charges that could get him up to life in prison.

Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Ann Zimmerman heard testimony Friday from the girl and her parents before finding enough evidence to order 30-year-old Danniel Boone Morgan II held to answer felony kidnapping and statutory sexual seduction charges.

Morgan’s deputy public defender, Tegan Machnich, said he’ll plead not guilty at arraignment Tuesday in Clark County District Court.

Morgan is from McAlester, Oklahoma.

He was fired as a police officer in Kiowa, Oklahoma, following his arrest June 25 with the girl at a Las Vegas Strip hotel.
