Alan Chaney, 68, of Ardmore, was charged with one count of first degree murder earlier this week after the Sunday shooting death of 48-year-old Jaclyn Chaney, of Edmond.
Jaclyn Chaney died in the parking lot of a Sulphur business Sunday —  while in Sulphur to retrieve her children from her husband Mitchell Chaney, 35, of Ardmore — after her father-in-law Alan Chaney allegedly shot her multiple times.
According to Sulphur City Manager Andy Freeman, the elder Chaney entered a plea of not guilty and was issued a $5 million bond by Murray County Associate Judge Aaron Duck.
The shooting is still under investigation, with limited details currently being released.
Freeman said multiple shots were fired at the scene, but he was still waiting on police reports to determine the total number of shots fired, the weapon used and the origination of the weapon used in the shooting.
“We are still waiting on the reports,” Freeman said. “There is no definitive motive as of yet.”
Assistant District Attorney Scot Sampson said a decision regarding a bill of particulars — which would allow the state to pursue the death penalty or other options — has not been made, but may be considered at the appropriate time.
Chaney is being represented by Ardmore attorney Michael Tipps.
