After years of questions, the family of an Oklahoma man shot and killed in cold blood finally has answers.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) Cold Case Unit has three people in custody following the 2013 murder of a man in Boise City.
Charles Nieman, 77, was getting gas with his wife on June 12, 2013, at Loaf ‘N Jug in Boise City, when they were approached by a man who pointed a gun at Nieman and demanded his wallet.
Nieman was hard of hearing and became confused about what the suspect was asking.
Within seconds, OSBI investigators say the suspect shot Nieman in the head. Nieman’s wife was unharmed.
The suspect fled on foot. The vehicle the shooter arrived on scene in also drove away from the gas station.
After years without leads, OSBI arrested three men in the crime.
