Updating a story we’ve been following for you here on The Mix, law enforcement has officially released the name of the victim in the fatal shooting near Sallisaw last Friday.
Vernon Gene Plummer, 44, of Sallisaw and formerly of Poteau, died after allegedly being shot by Nicole Marie Jordan, 32.
Formal charges of murder in the second-degree were filed today against Jordan. She is being held without bond at the Sequoyah County jail, according to Chief Deputy Charles House.
Plummer was pronounced dead at the scene by EMS. The shooting occurred the afternoon of March 22 at what appeared to be the residence of both the victim and suspect off Old Dump Road south of Sallisaw.
Sequoyah County sheriff deputies said Plummer had a prior history with law enforcement, and that the sheriff’s office had been called out to the residence on numerous domestic calls in the past.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is assisting with the case.
