(OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla.) OSBI agents made two arrests on Wednesday for a murder that took place in Boise City in June 2013. Zachary Wilson, 28, and Timothy Dees, 28, were arrested in Mobile, Alabama, by OSBI agents, Mobile County Sheriff’s Office, United States Probation and Parole and the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force. In the afternoon of June 12, 2013, 77-year-old Charles Nieman and his wife, of Alva, Oklahoma, were traveling through Boise City when they stopped at the Loaf ‘N Jug convenience store. The couple was approached by a man who pointed a gun at Mr. Nieman demanding his wallet, when the man shot Mr. Nieman and then fled on foot. The vehicle the shooter came from drove away at the same time. Mr. Nieman died as a result of the shooting. Mrs. Nieman was uninjured in the incident. The investigation has continued since 2013 with few leads until December 2018. The OSBI’s newly formed Cold Case Unit began reviewing the case. Additional laboratory analysis provided agents with a possible lead. This led agents into several states and ultimately resulted in the arrests of Wilson and Dees.
The case remains under investigation.
