A suspect in a 2011 homicide is now charged.
Tulsa police told FOX23 Lafayette Antonio Wilson is charged with first degree murder for the death of Martin Caleb.
Police said Martin Caleb was shot and killed during an attempted robbery in north Tulsa in January 2011. Police said a witness to the shooting was also killed in 2012.
Three years after Caleb's death, his mother talked to FOX23 about her frustrations about a lack of arrests in the case then.
Wilson is currently serving time in a federal prison in El Reno. He was convicted in 2013 for felon in possession of firearms and ammunition charges. He is in the middle of a six and a half year sentence. Prior to that, he was in prison for burglary and drug charges.
Investigators told FOX23 they do not believe Wilson shot Caleb.
They said there are at least two other suspects, and one of the suspects was the victim in another unsolved murder.
Investigators said the remaining suspects are in prison for other crimes.
They said a lack of evidence has kept the district attorney's office from filing charges for years.
They also said the murder happened during an ice storm, which caused further delays in the investigation.
