Man accused of murdering own parents in court Thursday

Thacker trial

BESSEMER, Ala. (WIAT) — A Bessemer man charged with the murder of his own parents is set to head to court Thursday.

In 2011, Drew Thacker was just 17-years-old when he was arrested. He is accused of shooting Ronald and Barbara Thacker. Their bodies were found inside their home in Bessemer in November 2011.

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

Thacker has a court hearing scheduled for 9 am.
