Cameron man gets life sentence for fatal shooting

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Published: July 11, 2014

POTEAU — A judge has sentenced a Cameron man to life in prison without parole for the shooting death of his former brother-in-law.

In May, a LeFlore County jury convicted Raymond Larry Nichols of first-degree murder in the 2009 death of Donald Joe Neff. Authorities say Neff was shot once in the back of the head outside of his bar in Poteau. His body was discovered three days later in a strip pit in Pocola.

District Court Judge Jon Sullivan handed down the life sentence Thursday to Nichols.

According to a local newspaper, Nichols has maintained his innocence throughout court proceedings. His attorney had argued there was no direct evidence linking Nichols to the crime. has disabled the comments for this article.
