Man gets 2 life terms in Love County slayings

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Published: July 31, 2014

MARIETTA — A 66-year-old man has been formally sentenced to two life terms without parole for the deaths of his father-in-law and father-in-law’s sister in rural Love County.

A local newspaper reports reports Aaron Eugene Carlile was sentenced Tuesday in Love County District Court.

He was found guilty in June of first-degree murder in the deaths of 78-year-old Thomas Monroe Culwell and 80-year-old Marion Almenia Culwell.

Almenia Culwell’s son found the two shot to death one-and-a-half miles from their rural home in May 2013. Authorities say the shooting stemmed from a longstanding feud between Carlile and Sonny Culwell.

A notice of intent to appeal has been filed on Carlile’s behalf. has disabled the comments for this article.
