TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A man convicted of kidnapping and killing a Tulsa postal worker in 1983 is now in an Oklahoma jail after serving time in a federal prison.
KWTV reports that the Federal Bureau of Prisons says Bobby Eugene Moffitt was released from custody on May 10 and was then booked into the Tulsa County Jail.
The 57-year-old was convicted of kidnapping and killing Charles Stone in 1983.
Moffitt pleaded guilty to robbery with a firearm and first-degree murder in 1986. He was sentenced to 15 years on the robbery charge and life in prison on the murder charge.
Moffitt’s accomplice, 58-year-old Martha Richardson, pleaded guilty to robbery with a firearm and first-degree murder. She received the same sentence and is serving time in a federal prison in Minnesota.
