The final suspect to be arrested in connection to a deadly botched robbery in Evansville will be in court Thursday afternoon. 21-year-old Biker Cox is set to go before a judge in Vanderburgh County Superior Court at 2:00 p.m.

Cox is charged with three felonies including Burglary with Serious Bodily Injury, Obstruction of Justice, and Organized Criminal Activity.

On Saturday, April 3rd Evansville Police responded to a home in the 500 block of South Bedford Avenue for reports of shots fired. When officers arrived at the scene the front door to a home was open and inside police found a man dead.

On Monday, Vanderburgh County Coroner Steve Lockyear identified the victim as 28-year-old Timothy Adams. According to the coroner, Adams died from a gunshot wound to his torso and his death has been ruled a homicide.

Over the weekend, three other men were arrested following two 911 calls to Evansville Dispatch. Those calls were made from a home off North Fulton Avenue. EPD went to the home and spoke to several people inside. There, investigators learned the shooting victim, along with three others, conspired to drive to the home off S. Bedford to commit a robbery.

18-year-old Zaelin Fox, 24-year-old Dayvon Lang, and 22-year-old Kingston Southard are all charged in connection to what EPD is calling a robbery gone wrong. Fox, Lang, and Southard all face charges of burglary with serious bodily injury, obstruction of justice, and organized criminal activity.

As of Thursday morning, Fox and Southard are no longer in the Vanderburgh County Jail. On Wednesday, a judge set a cash-only bond for Lang at $2,500.

Cox's initial hearing is set for 2:00 Thursday afternoon. We will keep you updated both on-air and online.

Following the passage of some scattered rainfall earlier this morning this afternoon turned out to be quite pleasant, albeit cooler overall. After peaking at 73° on Monday afternoon in Evansville, the River City reached just 68° earlier today - obviously a drop of just 5° isn't anything significant from day to day, but that difference signals the arrival of a cooling trend expected to last into the weekend ahead. As for the remainder of our Tuesday, expect our mainly cloudy skies to linger into the evening and overnight hours as temperatures gradually dwindle into the upper 40s for many of us.
