SAN DIEGO — A federal magistrate said Friday she will consider allowing an Oklahoma oil well to be used as collateral for bail for a former Kingfisher, Okla., man accused of hiring a man to kill a business rival.
Robert Brian Boeckman, 29, now of Santee, remains in the Metropolitan Correctional Center in San Diego in lieu of $100,000 bail.
Boeckman, his father, Robert George Boeckman, 57, of Kingfisher, Okla. and three other men are charged with conspiring to kill Robert Barr III, 46, of Dover, Okla.
Barr survived a shotgun blast that hit him while he was sitting in his bedroom on Aug. 7, 1985. He had previously sued the Boeckmans for $1.7 million that Barr said they owed his oil collection business.
