5-23-06 - A North Carolina man charged with murder at a Love County rest stop is back on southern Oklahoma soil. OSBI agents drove Shawn Leggett to the Love County jail Tuesday at 6pm, where he'll stand trial for the shooting death of Rufus Lowery.
Leggett and Timothy Byford are accused of killing Lowery at the Thackerville rest stop in late April. Both men stole his SUV and fled to North Carolina, their home state.
Authorities tracked them down there earlier this month, and began the extradition process's. Byford was arraigned two weeks ago.
