Tucsonan admits killing fellow Salpointe grad

Citizen Staff Writer



A Tucson man faces up to 18 years in prison in the slaying of his friend, a University of Arizona student.

Joseph Alexander Tylutki, 20, pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree murder in the Nov. 27, 2007, shooting of Vincent Bohlman, 19.

Pima County Superior Court Judge Michael Cruikshank will sentence Tylutki to a stipulated sentence of 10 to 18 years on April 28.

Tylutki, who originally was charged with first-degree murder, told police he shot Bohlman in self-defense, records show, but police suspected the crime scene was staged.

A witness to the killing told officers Bohlman was weaponless, records show.

Marijuana, which was packaged for sale, was found in the victim’s room, police said.

Bohlman was facing unrelated marijuana charges at the time of his death, records show.

Bohlman and Tylutki graduated from Salpointe Catholic High School in 2006, where Bohlman played football, the Citizen previously reported.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
