Bobby, 11, was at the wrong place at the wrong time along with his mother, Karen, Aunt and Cousin. Bobby, his mother Karen, his Aunt Tammy Garner, and his 16 year old cousin, Chelsie Garner were all shot to death by the husband of Tammy and the father of Chelsie.
About midnight before a scheduled Wednesday divorce hearing Kevin Garner, 45, drove to the rented home of his wife, Tammy Garner, and daughter, Chelsie Garner, in the Greenhill community in Lauderdale County. He shot them, along with his sister, Karen Beaty, and his 11-year-old nephew, Bobby Beaty. The Beaty’s, who lived in Illinois, were in town so Karen could help mediate the divorce proceeding. He killed himself near his home in Priceville, after burning the home to the ground.
