OKFUSKEE COUNTY, Okla. - A man accused of murdering his fiancee and two young girls in Okfuskee County was scheduled for a court appearance Wednesday. It has been continued until April 23 at 9:30 a.m.
Kevin Sweat, of Henryetta, is facing a first-degree murder charge for the death of Ashley Taylor last year.
Taylor was last seen in mid-July. She told family members she was traveling to New Orleans to marry Sweat.
After authorities began searching for Taylor, Sweat confessed to killing her during police interviews.
Taylor's burned remains were later found at Sweat's father's home.
Sweat also faces murder charges for the shooting deaths of 13-year-old Taylor Paschal-Placker and 11-year-old Skyla Whitaker.
The two were found shot to death on the side of a rural Weleetka road in 2008.
Sweat has pleaded not guilty in both cases.
When he returns to court, Sweat will appear for a preliminary hearing for the Taylor case and a status update on the Weleetka case.
