The wife of a murdered Lee County man has been arrested along with two others in connection with the death of Carl Dickinson.

On Wednesday, Lee County Sheriff's deputies took Angela Marie Dickinson, 30, of Waverly, into custody and charged her with Murder and Criminal Solicition. On Tuesday, two other men - Paul Nathan Phillips, 45, of Waverly; and Jake Ellis Barlett, 21, of Nonvascular; were arrested and charged with Murder and Hindering Prosecution.

A family friend found Dickinson shot to death inside his home on Lee Road 649 Sunday afternoon. At the time, police say Dickinson, who worked as a truck driver for the last several years and spent most of his time on the road, was last heard from on Thursday evening when he talked to his wife on the phone.

In an interview with WRBL News 3's Sydney Cameron Monday, 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 recent gave birth to a baby, according to the Dickinson family. Although Carl Dickinson he was not the father, he was on-board with the idea, the family says.

The family has also set up a memorial fund in his name. They hope to raise money to help pay for his burial. Donations can be made at the Keystone Bank in Auburn, located at 2394 E University Drive, or the location in Opelika. The fund is called the Carl Dickinson Memorial Fund.

The three arrested are currently being held in the Lee County Detention Facility on $250,000.00 bonds.  Anyone with additional information regarding this case is requested to contact the Lee County Sheriff's Office at 334.749.5651 or Lee County Crime Stoppers at 1.888.522.7847.
