Third man arrested in 2013 deadly shooting at Oklahoma store

The Associated Press - February 9, 2019 9:32 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma authorities say they’ve arrested a third person in the shooting of a 77-year-old man who was killed during a robbery more than five years ago.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said in a statement that 33-year-old Jeremy Hugh Scott was arrested Friday near Denver for his involvement in the June 2013 death of Charles Nieman at a convenience store in Boise City, Oklahoma.
Scott’s arrest came two days after authorities say they arrested two people in Mobile, Alabama, for their role in the shooting. Zachery Wilson and Timothy Dees, both 28, were being held Friday in the Mobile County jail.
A cold case unit in Oklahoma began reviewing the shooting in December. Authorities say laboratory testing revealed a lead that led to the arrests of the three.
Scott was being held in the Adams County jail in Colorado.
Online jail records don’t list attorneys for any of the three men.
