QUINTON, Okla. (AP) - A man accused of beating a Quinton man to death has been ordered to stand trial by an associate district judge.

The McAlester News-Capital (https://bit.ly/1HGXuCM ) reports that the 28-year-old man accused of killing 58-year-old Kenneth Flick listened to testimony from Oklahoma State Board Bureau of Investigation Special Agent John Jones during a preliminary hearing Wednesday.

The investigator said the suspect allegedly told him that he hit Flick “three to five times” with a hammer after Flick questioned the suspect about money he felt was owed to him for prescription pills he allegedly gave the suspect. The investigator says the fatal blow allegedly occurred when the victim was on the kitchen floor.

The suspect is scheduled to be arraigned on April 15, where a trial date could be set.
