A man convicted of kidnapping and killing a Tulsa postal worker in 1983 is now in an Oklahoma jail after serving time in a federal prison.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons says Bobby Eugene Moffitt was released from custody on May 10 and was then booked into the Tulsa County Jail.

The 57-year-old was convicted of kidnapping and killing Charles Stone in 1983.

Moffitt pleaded guilty to robbery with a firearm and first-degree murder in 1986. He was sentenced to 15 years on the robbery charge and life in prison on the murder charge.

Moffitt's accomplice, 58-year-old Martha Richardson, pleaded guilty to robbery with a firearm and first-degree murder. She received the same sentence and is serving time in a federal prison in Minnesota.
