Federal Charge Delaying Case From 2011 Murder

By  | 

(WIBW) -- The case of the last of the nine defendants from the 2011 murder of Natalie Gibson has been delayed due to a federal charge.

Michael Wilkins was accused of being involved in the shooting death of Gibson in her driveway. The prosecutors say her death was part of a robbery gone wrong.

Back in September, Wilkins pleaded guilty in federal court to being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Matt Patterson, a senior assistant District Attorney for Shawnee County, says Wilkins is not yet sentenced in that case.

There is an April 10 docket appearance scheduled in Shawnee County Court for Wilkins. It will remain pending until the federal sentencing is completed.
