Jury Convicts Laclede County Man On Murder Charges
After just three hours of deliberating, a man charged with brutally murdering an elderly couple in their home in Bennett Springs has been found guilty.
The Attorney General himself worked the courtroom in a fight to see Jesse Driskill put to death. Driskill raped and murdered Coleen Wilson and suffocated her 82-year-old husband, Johnnie.
In the middle of the verdict being read, Driskill asked to leave the courtroom. The rest of the verdict was read without him.
