MA)--A man charged last week with first-degree murder in the shooting death of an Enid man was arraigned Thursday. 20 year-old Jarrod Lee Bergman appeared for arraignment on charges of first-degree murder and possession of a firearm after former felony conviction or while on probation. He is charged with fatally shooting Cord Kenneth Allen on June 5 at a residence in the 1900 block of West Walnut. Bergman appeared without an attorney and has been held without bond since his arrest June 10 in Grant County. According to Enid News and Eagle, the judge continued the denial of bond for Bergman until a hearing could be held to determine if bond would be set. He faces life, life in prison without parole or death on the murder charge and one to 10 years in prison on the firearms charge.

SG)--Col. Corey Simmons took his last flight Thursday as commander of the 71st Flying Training Wing, as he prepares to relinquish his post this month and move on to a new command in the Air Force. Simmons came to Vance Air Force Base in July 2018. Vance has distinguished itself under Simmons as the only Air Education and Training Command base to meet its production goals in both 2018 and 2019. Vance was recognized as the top AETC pilot training wing in 2018, and at one time during Simmons' tenure, the base had the top AETC squadron in T-1, T-6 and T-38 aircraft and the top operations group in AETC. Simmons' change of command will be 10:00 a.m. June 29. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, it will not be a large gathering and will be live-streamed on the base Facebook page. Col. Tim Danielson is slated to assume command at Vance, coming from serving as commander of the air mobility operations group at Pope Air Force Base, N.C. Simmons will move on to command the 60th Air Mobility Wing at Travis Air Force Base, Calif.
