MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Stanley Clemmons appeared in court Monday morning, October 21 after spending the weekend in jail. The 64-year-old is charged with killing Clarence "Bo" Lundy.
New details as to the possible motive were released. Clemmons is being represented by well-known defense attorney Dennis Knizley, who spoke on his client's behalf after the hearing.
Knizley said Lundy and Clemmons' daughter had been dating for more than a year. He said over that year, Clemmons and his wife had experienced Lundy abusing their daughter on a regular basis.
Knizley said recently, Clemmons had kicked Lundy out of his Baldwin County home due to the escalating violence. Clemmons however, would drive to Grand Bay where Lundy was staying, and pick him up and drive him back to Baldwin County for work.
Knizley said that's what happened Friday. Clemmons had gone to pick Lundy up for work. Knizley would not go into detail about what happened that morning.
Mobile County sheriff's deputies were called to a mobile home in Grand Bay when Lundy's brother found him dead.
Clemmons has no arrest record. Lundy does have a record including arrests for domestic violence which Knizley brought up in court.
