Death penalty sought for Bell in death of Leiters Ford area woman

March 16, 2012

A death sentence request has been filed in the case of Roy Bell, one of three area men accused in the shooting death of Wilma Upsall near Leiters Ford in November.

Fulton County Prosecutor Rick Brown filed the death penalty request in Fulton County Superior Court Wednesday.

81-year-old Upsall died as a result of gunshot wounds inflicted during a burglary allegedly involving Bell, William Scroggs of Delong, and Jason Miller of Plymouth. The latter two have also been charged with murder. Upsall was tied to a chair with telephone cord prior to being shot to death by Bell, allege prosecutors.

The three were the subject of a massive manhunt Thanksgiving weekend in the Culver and Monterey area.
