Nearly four years ago, Tyrone Lamont Webb Jr. reported his girlfriend missing. This week, a jury convicted the 31-year-old of first-degree murder for shooting her twice in the head. He had been charged in 2009 after the woman's body was found by hunters in the woods in Woodlawn.
Mia Nichols, 27, was a mother of three. She had been shot and her body discarded, police said at the time, until her partially clothed skeletal remains were discovered off Dogwood Road near Ridge Road. Nichols had worked for Volunteers of America, where she was last seen on Oct. 28, 2008, nearly a year before her body was found.
