…According to the preliminary investigation, Little went to the Inskip Road residence to see his ex-girlfriend. The two had been separated for a couple of weeks. After arriving at the Womack home, Little spoke to the family and Wegener, a family friend, all gathered on the back patio of the residence.

After the conversation Little was walking down the driveway toward his vehicle when he pulled a .45 caliber handgun and shot Ashley’s mother and Wegener.
