August 17, 2006

Moultrie --  Twenty-year-old Wilma Ann Yvonne Stover and 45-year-old Gary Johnny Thompson, Junior, both of Nashville, have been charged with murdering an entire family and their housekeeper near Moultrie.

On November 8th of 2004, the bodies of Jaime and Tina Resendez, their three year old son Juan, Tina's mother Betty Watts, and their housekeeper, Liliana Alegria Aguilar were found by the couple's three young children and 12-year-old nephew. They had been shot execution style.

As the case progressed, more information was revealed about the family. Jaime and Tina Resendez had been arrested in November 2003 in the largest drug bust in Berrien County history.

Stover and Thompson are in federal prison serving time for drug convictions, and were linked to the murders through that investigation.

More arrests are likely, and the GBI is also looking for a person of interest in the case.

Tonight at six, we'll show you a sketch of that person.
