Eldon man to be sentenced for mid-MOhomicides

Sentencing is scheduled Thursday for an Eldon man who pleaded guilty to killing a mid-Missouri couple nearly a year ago.

Derrell Spellmeyer, 43, admitted to shooting Carol Wilson, 53, and stabbing Freddie Wilson, 66, last February at their home in Versailles.

Spellmeyer is also charged with armed criminal action.

Two other suspects, Garland Mitchell, 45, and Mandy Mitchell, 28, both of Jefferson City, are awaiting trial on the same charges.

The Mitchells told investigators the three went to the home to obtain drugs, but only Spellmeyer went inside.
