Ill feelings in the wake of a nasty child custody fight apparently led to the shooting death of a Warren County man last month. The Warren County Sheriff’s Department arrested three suspects in the shooting of 60-year-old Charles Windmann, gunned down in his home near Wright City on September 19th. Charged with murder are Jesse Snyder of Ulman, his brother Robert Snyder of Osage Beach, and Curtis Martin of Ulman. Investigators say the three actually went to the home intent on killing Charles Windmann’s son, James Windmann. Snyder is married to James Windmann’s former girlfriend, with whom he had a child. An investigator states simply: that after the bruising custody battle, the child’s mother and stepfarther didn’t want James Windmann to see the little girl. He adds that if James Windmann and his mother would have entered the residence with his father, there might have been a triple murder.
