Murder trial ends after plea agreement

Published 9:46pm Monday, November 16, 2009

Two Clanton men on trial for murder entered plea agreements Monday.

Christopher Iman Ulmer, 33, pled guilty to manslaughter and will be sentenced Dec. 2.

Kowosky Tywan Christian, 31, pled guilty to hindering prosecution. He was sentenced Monday to three years on the felony charge.

The men were scheduled to stand trial this week in connection with the 2006 shooting death of Issac Dedarge Bulger of Clanton.

According to officials, both men were in a truck from which a person allegedly shot into the victim’s car in West End. Bulger died the following day from a gunshot wound to the head.

Assistant District Attorney Jessica Sanders said there was no evidence that Christian shot into Bulger’s car.
