It now appears the double murder of a Versailles couple revolved around drugs. Freddie and Carol Wilson were killed at their rural Morgan County home Monday. 43–year-old Darrell Spellmeyer of Eldon and 45–year-old Garland Mitchell and 28–year-old Mandy Mitchell of Jefferson City are all charged with murder.
Investigators say Spellmeyer shot and stabbed the couple in order to steal pain killers that had been prescribed to Carol Wilson. Officers found a pistol and drugs in the trio’s van after they crashed nearby the murder scene. Spellmeyer apparently knew the victims.
