Three sentenced in Sioux City cold case murder

Posted: Updated:
SIOUX CITY (KWWL) -

Three people convicted of murder in a cold case are sentenced to prison.  The case involves the death of Tony "T-Bone" Canfield in 2011.

26-year-old Devery Hibbler, of Dumas, Arkansas, 35-year-old Robert Beaver, of Sioux City, and 30-year-old Courtland Clark, of Flowery Branch, Georgia each pleading guilty to interference with commerce by robbery.  Clark and Hibbler also pleading guilty to use of a firearm during a crime causing death.

Evidence shows the three armed men went into Canfield's Sioux City home to steal his marijuana and money.  Beaver hit and held Canfield's wife, while Clark and Hibbler robbed them.  

Canfield tried to escape, but was shot to death on his front porch by Hibbler.  The three men were able to get away for nearly five years, before eventually being arrested in April.  Hibbler was sentenced to 35 years in prison, Beaver to 20 years, and Clark to 21 years.

“I would like to commend the hard work and perseverance of the law enforcement officers and agents that investigated this case," said United States Attorney Kevin Techau.  "The FBI and Sioux City Police department spent hundreds of hours collecting evidence and tracking down witnesses from numerous states. Because of their hard work and cooperation, a difficult murder case has been solved, and the perpetrators brought to justice.”
