BRISTOL, TN – Robert Seth Denton, 19, is accused of shooting and killing his mother, stepfather and grandmother with a high-powered, semi-automatic rifle. He also wounded a child during the shooting spree.
Even more horrific? The Sullivan County Sheriff says there were six children in the house at the time of the murders.
Sheriff Wayne Anderson says, “This was a horrific scene because of the kids…. But these kids, they saw what went on. They got to live with that for the rest of their life.”
On Monday, Denton showed up in court for the first time charged with three counts of murder along with several other charges.
Just another example of a sick individual, armed with one gun, has the power to ruin the lives of so many.
