A man arrested for a Richmond murder last week has been arrested for murder three times before. He is on parole after a manslaughter conviction. 

According to Richmond Police Department, Bobby Dee Dozier, 37, had three previous arrests for murder. He was convicted of a 2010 manslaughter and was paroled in September 2020. 

According to Richmond PD, the first three murders arrested were during the 2000s, and the first two might not have been charged. It was the third murder that led to a manslaughter conviction. 

Dozier was connected to the killing of Emari Cook, 26, who was shot with an assault rifle on July 14 near South 49th Street and Cutting Boulevard. 

“A suspect exited the driver seat of the vehicle holding an assault rifle, confronted Cook and ultimately shot and killed him,” the press release stated. “Casings to an assault rifle were located at the scene and a description of a vehicle was obtained from nearby commercial video surveillance cameras.”
