Suspect Pleads Guilty In Death Of Grandparents

A Wilson County man will spend the rest of his life behind bars for murdering the grandparents he lived with. Justin Pelletier, 21-years-old, plead guilty to shooting William and Edna Brantley, his grandparents, while the couple slept in their Elm City home. Investigators say the couple was found March 20, four days after the shootings, each with at least two gunshot wounds. Lawmen say it appeared the motive for the killings was money to support Pelletier's drug habit.
