Tennessee man charged with killing, beating family members
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — A Tennessee man has been charged with fatally shooting his stepbrother and seriously beating his stepfather.
The Shelby County district attorney’s office said Monday that 26-year-old Victor Bonner has been indicted on charges including first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.
Investigators say deputies found Bonner’s stepbrother, 20-year-old Romero White, dead of a gunshot wound to the head in a home in a Memphis neighborhood in December.
White’s father was found badly beaten. He was not identified in a statement released by the DA’s office.
The statement says Bonner told deputies the shooting was something he had thought about for a long time.
Bonner is being held at the Shelby County Jail. Online court records do not show if he has lawyer who can speak on his behalf in the case.
