Preliminary hearing for an Ada man charged with felony murder in connection with the abduction and subsequent murder of 16-year-old Caitlin Wooten and suicide of her killer, Jerry Don Savage, ended Monday afternoon with Special Judge John D. Miller finding probable cause to proceed with a trial.

Assistant District Attorney Chris Ross, called 14 witnesses to testify in the case against Faye Francis Sliger, which included the testimony of Caitlin's mother Donna Wooten, officers of the Ada Police Department, Pontotoc County Sheriff's Department, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations, Federal Bureau of Investigations, and the State Medical Examiner's Office.

The focus of the state's case against Sliger was a timeline of events suggesting Sliger at the least had knowledge of Caitlin's abduction but neglected to report it to law enforcement. According to the testimony of state’s witnesses and law enforcement at 3 p.m. Savage borrowed Sliger's Dodge pickup from Sliger's girlfriend Karen Dial's house on 15th St. in Ada. Phone records show from 3:03 p.m. to 3:17 p.m., Savage made four calls to Sliger, then from 3:19 p.m. to 3:23 Sliger made four calls to Savage's cell phone. At approximately 3:20 p.m. Caitlin was abducted from Ada High School. At 3:26 p.m. Sliger called Savage's cell phone from a pay phone near Dial's house. At 3:30, a witness reported seeing Sliger walking towards Dial's house on foot. Savage called Caitlin's grandmother demanding Donna speak with him at 3:40 p.m. The last phone call Savage made on his phone was logged at 3:47 p.m. according to phone records.

Around 4:20 p.m. a witness reported seeing the green pickup arrive at Sliger's shop.

At 4:28 p.m. the Amber Alert describing the green Dodge pickup was broadcast.

During Donna’s testimony, she told the court the night of the murder she gave police Sliger’s name as a possible source to find Savage because the two were friends and she knew he had rural land on which to hide. Around 9:30 p.m. that night, Sliger was taken to the Ada Police Department for questioning. After police were unable to gain helpful information from Sliger on Savage and Caitlin’s location, Donna asked to speak with Sliger. Donna testified she went alone to Sliger while he was detained at the city jail and asked for any information that would help her find her daughter but received none.

According to the testimony of Pontotoc County Undersheriff Joe Glover, during an initial interview the night of the abduction Sliger said he had not seen or spoken with Savage at all the day of the murder.

According to Special Agent Craig Overby of the FBI, during interrogation Sliger said in weeks prior to the murder, Savage had used Sliger's pickup to watch Donna and her daughters. According to Overby, Sliger said Savage told him he might grab one of Donna's girls because he thought Donna would talk to him if he had one of the girls. Overby also said he believed he was being intentionally misled during the interrogation because of Sliger's statements he alleges were contradictory.

After Monday's witnesses were heard, Miller denied Sliger bail a third time and said, "Based on the evidence presented today, it is ordered bail be withheld."

Miller announced Sliger's formal arraignment is scheduled for 9 a.m. Jan. 10 before District Judge Thomas Landrith.

Since Sliger's arrest in September, Dial has also been arrested and charged with accessory after the fact in association with the Sept. 23 crimes against Caitlin by Jerry Don Savage.
