Woodward County’s grand juror met in a lengthy session on Thursday at the Woodward County Courthouse.

Jurors began their day at 9 a.m. and didn’t finish until 7:15 p.m., even having lunch at the courthouse.

The nature of the grand jury investigation has yet to be revealed. By law the grand jury meets in secret.

Several previous witnesses made brief appearances in the jury room during the day, among them Woodward County Sheriff Les Morton, former deputy Gary Stanley, who is now with the District Attorney’s office, and County Clerk Ron Hohweiler. It is not known if they actually testified again on Thursday.

The 12-member grand jury met briefly a couple of weeks ago, then began hearing testimony on Monday.

The total number of witnesses called and other information will be provided after the grand jury finalizes its report, said Joel-lyn McCormick, with the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office. The final report will be the last thing the grand jurors do, McCormick said. They are scheduled to resume again today at 8:30 a.m.
