justice lawA trial is underway in Colquitt County for a Valdosta man charged in a 2004 quintuple murder. 34-year Alexander Woods III was the alleged triggerman in the Nov. 8, 2004 deaths of 50-year old Betty Faye Watts, 29-year old Tina Resendez, 3-year old Juan Carlos Resendez, 30-year old Liliana Aguilar, and 24-year-old Jaime Resendez.

Two others involved in the killings, Johnny Thompson and Wilma Stover, have already pled guilty to five counts of felony murder.

The killings were allegedly retribution for a drug deal gone bad. Jaime and Tina Resendez had been a part of Berrien County’s largest drug bust in history, a trafficking network that sent guns, cash, and thousands of pounds of drugs from Berrien to Mexico.
