Idabel man convicted in salesman’s death

The Associated Press - January 21, 2019 9:57 am

A jury entered a guilty verdict in the first-degree murder trial of Dakota Shay Fox, 22, of Idabel on Jan. 16.

Fox was charged with the Jan. 4, 2018, homicide of Jarrin Boyles of Pottsboro, Texas.

Boyles, a door-to-door cleaning salesman, was found unresponsive in a pool of blood on the edge of a residential street intersection in Idabel. The initial call to police was that a pedestrian had been ran over.

Boyles was taken to the McCurtain Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead. It was also determined that he had been shot in the head.

The OSBI was asked for assistance and began investigating. Boyles had no identification on him so his identity was initially unknown. There was also evidence that he had been robbed. During the investigation, the identity of the victim was confirmed and eventually Fox was arrested.

Fox is scheduled to be formally sentenced in March.
