BOISE CITY, Okla. (AP) – The last of three Alabama men charged in a fatal shooting in the Oklahoma Panhandle more than six years ago has pleaded guilty to murder in the case.
Court records show that 25-year-old Timothy Dees, of Mobile, was sentenced to life with the possibility of parole after pleading guilty Tuesday in Cimarron County District Court.
Dees,  along with 29-year-old Zachary Wilson of Mobile and 33-year-old Jeremy Scott of Semmes were charged in the June 2013 shooting death of 77-year-old Charles Nieman (pictured) of Alva during an attempted robbery at a convenience store in Boise City, about 295 miles (475 kilometers) northwest of Oklahoma City.
Dees and Wilson were arrested on February 6th in Mobile. Scott was arrested on February 8th near Denver.
Wilson and Scott both pleaded no contest to murder charges in the case in August.
