US man pleads guilty in murder of Bosnian

A man has pleaded guilty to murder in the 2007 shooting death of a Bosnian immigrant at the victim's car dealership job in Alabama.
Authorities say 24-year-old Alfonza Boykin II of Mobile pleaded guilty Monday and faces a possible life sentence on April 23 for the slaying of 43-year-old Drazen Nikolic, who was shot five times, according to the Press-Register newspaper.
Assistant District Attorney Ashley Rich says the motive in the November 2007 shooting was never made clear. Boykin, a naturalized U.S. citizen, was slain at Liberty Auto Sales. Rich says an investigation found nothing had been taken from the business.
Nikolic left most of his family behind in Bosnia and married a woman he met in Mobile a decade before the shooting, officials said.
