In 2004, some hunters found partial human remains in Blanchard.

It was 2006 when the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation determined the remains were Troy’s.

Eight years later, in Nov. 2014, investigators announced they were taking a closer look at the case.

Within a few weeks, 45-year-old Bobby Barnhill was arrested for his involvement in Neidhart’s murder.

 

According to the OSBI, Barnhill and Neidhart were acquaintances.

This week, Barnhill took a plea deal.

Although specifics on the deal are not clear at this time, sources told KFOR Barnhill will serve 12 years in prison and 30 years of probation.

No other information has been released at this time.
