Schaffer died of a single shot to the back, and Willie Ray Williams confessed to shooting him after Nichols exited the store. Williams was executed in 1995. Nichols' first trial was dismissed after jurors could not unanimously agree upon a punishment. Also, Nichols claims ineffective assistance of counsel
