Kelly Corn

OKLAHOMA COUNTY, Okla. – A man who is accused of driving the wrong way on the Kilpatrick Turnpike, causing a crash that killed a little boy, was back in court Thursday.

Kelly Corn is facing five charges, including second degree murder for the death of 6-year-old Saxton Watley.

The little boy’s mother and brother were also seriously hurt in the crash.

Prosecutors say Corn was high on meth at the time of the crash.

You may recall, Corn initially turned himself into a jail in Texas where his uncle is a justice of the peace.

He gave Corn a bond.

However, Corn was later told to surrender himself to Oklahoma County officials and has been held without bond ever since.

Thursday, a judge denied Corn’s request for bond until he gets a house in Oklahoma County.

Once he does that, he would get a $250,000 bond and be under house arrest.
