Parole Denied For Former Police Officer

A former Tulsa Police officer convicted in the murder of a Tulsa woman with a crossbow has been denied parole.

The state Pardon and Parole Board voted 3-to-2 that 53-year-old Jimmie Dean Stohler should continue serving his life sentence. In 1985, Stohler was convicted of killing Michele Rae Powers.

Powers was shot in the chest with a crossbow in January 1982 in the parking lot of her Tulsa apartment complex.

Powers was the former girlfriend of one of Stohler's friends, Robert Doss, who like Stohler was a former Tulsa Police officer.

Powers was the mother of Doss' son, over which she and Doss were having a custody dispute. Doss and another man were acquitted in Powers' death.

Stohler will again be eligible for parole consideration in 2010.
