GAINESVILLE, Mo. -- A Theodosia man was charged Thursday in the execution-style killing of a Thornfield man at Bull Shoals Lake.

Tony Youngblood, 35, was charged with first-degree murder, first-degree robbery and armed criminal action in the death of Densel Wilks, 63, Ozark County Prosecutor Tom Cline said.

Fishermen found Wilks' body Aug. 10 lying partially in the water at the lake. Cline said Wilks had been shot three times in the back of the head.

Youngblood was arrested Aug. 19, after a traffic stop near Las Vegas. He was driving Wilks' station wagon when he was arrested, Cline said.
