OKLAHOMA CITY — A man charged with first-degree murder in the stabbing death of 19-year-old woman in a crowded Oklahoma City bus station will be the focus of a preliminary hearing.
The hearing is scheduled Wednesday in Oklahoma County District Court for 22-year-old Isaiah Tryon. Tryon is accused in the March 16 stabbing death of Tia Bloomer, the mother of Tryon's 2-year-old child.
Police said Bloomer was stabbed repeatedly inside a Metro Transit bus station in front of horrified commuters. She was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
Officers said a security guard took Tryon into custody before police arrived. Detectives questioned several people inside the bus station, which serves as a transfer hub for riders of the metro area's public transportation system.
First-degree murder is punishable by death or life in prison.
