Morgan County prosecutors say Monday’s murders near Versailles resulted from a botched attempt to obtain prescription drugs. 43-year-old Derrell Spellmeyer of Eldon, 28-year-old Mandy Mitchell and 27-year-old Garland Mitchell, both of Jefferson City, are charged with two counts each of second-degree murder and armed criminal action … accused of killing 66-year-old Freddie Wilson and his 53-year-old wife, Carol. Investigators recovered a bottle of hydrocodone belonging to Carol Wilson. The Mitchells told authorities that they drove Spellmeyer to the Wilson’s home to get drugs. Authorities also say Spellmeyer’s sister-in-law was once married to Freddie Wilson. And, they say,the name “Darrell” can be heard on the recording of Carol Wilson’s 9-1-1 calls.
