Accused killers of Carthage couple to be tried separately

Separate trials will be held for the accused killers of Bob and Ellen Sheldon, Carthage.

Judge Gayle Crane ruled Monday that the cases would be severed and that both will be held in Jasper County with out-of-town juries brought in.

The next hearing in the cases is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Jan. 25.

Wasn't it Bob and Ellen SHELDON, not Goodman, who were murdered by these two?

You're right. That slipped past me. I will get that changed.

May these two, if guilty, never see the light of freedom again.

i doubt it, judge crane has a history of leniency. Armed robbers get NO JAIL TIME, just rehab for 90 days. If they are convicted and get more than 12 yrs, i will be shocked.
