A Green Country man is heading to prison for life after the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals upheld his murder conviction.
Edward Vanwoudenberg, 61, of Glenpool, was convicted in the March 2013 murder of Robert Sampson.
He received a life without parole sentence for the crime.
Sampson's decomposed body was found dead in his west Tulsa home nearly a week after he was reported missing.
Police said there were signs of a struggle at his home.
DNA evidence linked him and another suspect to the murder scene.
