William Reece, 57, has been charged in the 1997 kidnapping and slaying of Tiffany Johnston. Investigators say he kidnapped her from a Bethany car wash, raped her and strangled her.

The state on Friday called several witnesses, including the Texas rangers who interviewed Reece while in prison for unrelated crimes. A ranger testified that Reece admitted to raping and killing Johnston after he sprayed water on her at the car wash.

Her mother, Kathy Dobry, and other family members were in court to hear testimony and to see Reece in person.

"He's evil," Dobry said. "It's strange because he shows no emotion. He just sits there."

Reece also is accused in three homicides in Texas. Last year, he led investigators to two of the bodies.

He might face trial for those killings after his trial in Oklahoma is complete.
