On May 17, 2006, Police were called to a DeKalb County home and found 31 year old Berna Ellington and her two year old twins who had been beaten to death with the claw end of a hammer.
Clayton Ellinton first told authorities that he had come home and found the three bodies. He later
changed his story and said that he had killed his wife after she killed the children.
A Jury didn't believe his story. He has been convicted of murder and sentenced to death. At his sentencing, he was assaulted by his murdered wife's cousin in the courtroom.
