SEQUOYAH COUNTY, Okla. - Sheriff's deputies in Sequoyah County are cracking cold cases with the help of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.
Sheriff Ron Lockhart tells 2NEWS his office and the district attorney's office, assisted by the OSBI, have been focused on cold cases recently, and they've made an arrest in connection with a homicide that occurred more than a decade ago.
On Wednesday, deputies arrested 38-year-old Rex Robbins, of Sallisaw, for the murder of Mitchell Nixon almost 16 years ago.
Lockhart says he expects additional arrests in connection to the case.
