A grand jury indicted four individuals on Capital Murder charges in connection with a murder for hire plot.

Angela Marie Dickinson, 31, Paul Nathan Phillips, 46, Jake Ellis Bartlett, 22, all of Auburn, and Travis Lamont Kyles, 20, of Tuskegee were arrested for their involvement in the killing of Carl Dickinson last September.

These charges stem from Dickinson's death on September 8, 2013. The Lee County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call reporting an injured man at a residence on Lee Road 649 northwest of Auburn. On arrival deputies located an individual who suffered from what appeared to be gunshot wounds to his upper body. An adult male who resides at the victim’s residence told deputies that he came home to find the victim and called 911. The victim was identified as Carl Ellis Dickinson, 59, of 80 Lee Road 649 Auburn. Mr. Dickinson was found inside his residence where he resided with his wife, an adult male family friend and two pre-teen children.

In an interview with WRBL News 3's Sydney Cameron in September, Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones said: "Not to say that we haven't had stranger on stranger crime, because we have, but in these issues with homicides in many cases, we've seen some type of relationship between the victim and the offender."

Angela Marie had recently gave birth to a baby, according to the Dickinson family. Although Carl Dickinson was not the father, he was on-board with the idea, the family said.
