ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- A man charged in the 2003 slaying of a coin dealer who was found dead in his St. George store pleaded guilty Friday to first-degree felony murder.
Daniel Robert Campbell, 52, was initially charged with murder, aggravated robbery and aggravated kidnapping, all first-degree felonies. He was also charged with a second-degree felony charge of possession of a deadly weapon. All but the murder charges were dropped in exchange for his plea.
Jordan Allgood was killed Nov. 25, 2003, during a robbery at his store, Allgood Coin. The death attracted widespread attention in coin collectors' circles.
The American Numismatic Association and the Utah Retail Coin Dealers Association -- both organizations to which Allgood belonged -- pledged $5,000 each for information leading to a conviction.
It wasn't until after the case aired on "America's Most Wanted" that the St. George Police Department received a tip that led to Campbell's arrest last January.
Campbell faces five years to life in prison when is sentenced Aug. 31.
Also on Friday, the St. George Police Department announced it had obtained an arrest warrant for a second man suspected in the killing. The warrant was expected to be served Friday on Todd Wayne Mulder, 40, who is in jail in Las Vegas on separate charges.
The arrest warrant for Mulder is on charges of first-degree felony murder, aggravated robbery and aggravated kidnapping. Extradition proceedings will begin to bring Mulder to trial in St. George, the police department said in a statement.
