Bessemer man sentenced to 25 years for killing his mother


BESSEMER, Ala. (WIAT) — A 20-year-old Bessemer man will serve 25 years in prison for killing his mother.

Brennan Thacker pleaded guilty Thursday to killing his mother.

He was initially charged with capital murder in the shooting deaths of his parents, Ronnie and Barbara Thacker.

Their bodies were found inside their home in Bessemer in November 2011.

Under a plea deal, Thacker will serve time for his mother’s murder.

Prosecutors dropped the charges in the father’s death.

Investigators say Thacker shot the couple and then met his brother for dinner before confessing to authorities.
