PHILADELPHIA, Miss.–The double shooting of a father and son who had owned Wendy’s restaurants in several counties is why a grand jury in Neshoba County has indicted Billy Jerald McLain.
Prosecutors said that McLain shot and killed both Brandon Lee Woodis, 32, and his father, Gilbert Anthony Woodis, 57, both of Union. Kicks967.com reported that the senior Woodis had recently sold his Wendy’s franchises in Philadelphia, Jackson, Choctaw, Forest and Newton.
The shooting happened at the Woodis home, according to Neshoba County Coroner Allen Collins.
McLain told investigators that he and the younger Woodis, who was 32, had smoked meth the night before the shooting, reported the Neshoba Democrat. Brandon Woodis died from being hit in the head and from a gunshot.
McLain may have thought both men did something to his sister, reported the paper. McLain called his sister in Oklahoma and told her what he had done, said investigators.
