Just days after a murder-suicide in Springfield, another one rocks the Show-Me State. This time it happened in a small town not far from Rolla. Dixon City Marshal Cliffty Yoakum says two men were fighting over the same woman.
Gary Ball was divorcing his wife, when he confronted Theron Parlin, who was dating her. Yoakum says witness testimony made things pretty clear; that testimony showed Gary Ball emptying a nine millimeter pistol into Parlin’s head before turning the gun on himself.
