FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) — A man is facing charges in connection with a 2012 Fort Wayne homicide case.

A warrant has been issued for 24-year-old Zachery Doan for murder and robbery in the death of 58-year-old J.R. Shimer II.

Shimer was killed inside Antiques on Broadway on Dec. 31, 2012.

Doan is already incarcerated at Indiana State Prison in Michigan City for a 2014 robbery in which he pleaded guilty to beating an 80-year-old woman so badly that she lost an eye.

It’s not clear when Doan could be brought to Fort Wayne to be formally charged in Shimer’s murder.
