By ANGELA M. CASTELUCCI Staff writer One of the rst things friends will tell you about Paul McNutt is that he is not a monster. Taking the stand in his defense, McNutts daughter, Cheryl Moore described her father as patient, giving he never spanked us as children. He never raised a hand to anybody. I never heard him raise his voice. But on Dec. 5, 2011--in the space of less than 60 seconds--McNutt committed a monstrous act that shattered the lives of two families forever. Both his family and the family of his victims have tried to put the pieces of their lives back together since that dark day nearly two years ago. However their success has been measured in small increments at best, because looming in the background was the specter of a public trial where each would have to relive the events of that day--the men and women who witnessed the destruction rsthand and the relatives of the man who never once denied pulling the trigger. Rising tides of emotions swelled on both sides of the aisle during three long days of testimony. Those emotions reached a breaking point when the four-man, two-woman jury returned its verdict shortly before 5:30 p.m. Thursday. The 71-year-old McNutts fate was once again decided in a turn of time that lasted less a minute with the pronouncement of guilty to the charges of rst degree murder for the deaths of Lee Spees Sr. and Lees Spees Jr., and the attempted murder of David Spees. Sentencing in the case was just as swift when Judge Greg Parker imposed the mandatory life sentences that the rst degree murder convictions carried. The judgment for count three of the indictment attempted rst degree murderwas academic, McNutts attorney Cliff Davis said when Parker queried as to any sentencing requests. Given Mr. Pauls age and health, what you give on count three is academic, Davis said. McNutt was ultimately given a 35-year prison sentence for the charge, to run consecutive with the two life terms. Accepting the sentence with the same lack of expression he had shown throughout the trial, McNutt declined to make any statements to the court. As he was being led away in handcuffs, he turned to Davis and thanked him. You done what you could, McNutt said.

This years theme is Motown Madness and weve had so much fun with the music and choreography. Just the fact that teenagers born in the 1990s are still familiar with The Temptations is a testament to the music of Motown and its era. There are only four girls competing this year so the program itself will be concluded by 7:30 p.m., but I can promise that this hourand-a-half is packed full of nostalgia and pizzazz. We want to invite everyone to come out, support the ladies, and I dare anyone to try and sit still in their seat when they hear and see what we have in store. Our group may be small, but theyre mightyjust like Motown, Co-Chair Tonya WilliamsBenziger said. MainStreet Perry Director Tracey Smith will serve as Mistress of Ceremonies for the program.

But for a group of children who spent a week this past summer at Camp Corral hosted by 4-Hs Camp Ocala, their memories will last much longer. Former Taylor County resident Sarah Whiteld, who has been the resident director at Camp Ocala for the past year and a half, says all of the work 4-H does is important, but to her, one of the most important activities is this six-day Camp Corral. That is because the 133 campers who attended this year have a common experience that, fortunately, most children their age do not share. Every one of them have has had a parent who was either wounded, disabled or killed in military service to their country. They have a life experience that you or I have no idea about, Whiteld said. To imagine having a parent coming back different, emotionally changed or not coming back at all. Receiving generous support from Golden Corral, Camp Corral started in North Carolina and partnered with 4-H to help provide the camps needed for the program. Since then, it has expanded to 18 locations from coast to coast across the United States. Camp Ocala and Whiteld became involved in summer 2012 when representatives contacted Floridas 4-H about expanding into the state. Suspects led law enforcement ofcers on a 30-mile chase that reached speeds of 100 miles per hour and ended with a head-on collision targeting a sheriffs patrol car late Thursday, Sept. 26. Perry Police Department (PPD) ofcers were rst dispatched to Old Mexico Restaurant around 7:30 p.m. in reference to three vehicles that had been burglarized. Owners of the vehicles said they routinely park their vehicles at the restaurant, go for a run and then dine together. However when they returned from their run Thursday night, they discovered that all three of their vehicles passenger side front windows had been knocked out and several items stolen, including purses, wallets, cash and credit cards. Ofcers were still processing the scene when one of the victims reported that a charge at Walgreens had just been placed on one of her stolen cards.

A-2 Taco Times October 2, 2013 courtroom, family and friends on both sides wrapped their arms around one another for comfort. There were no expressions of elation from the Spees family, simply a collective sigh of relief that this particular phase of their nightmare was nally over. On the McNutt side, his daughter and son were left to watch as their father was ngerprinted and once again placed in shackles. The mild manner McNutt displayed throughout the trial was in direct contrast to his uninching actions of Dec. 5, 2011--actions that Assistant State Attorney John Weed documented in great detail in his closing statement to the jury. This is murder, plain and simple, he said before bringing the scene to life not only through words, but also eyewitness video recordings and 911 calls. The sound of the initial three shotgun blasts was unmistakable in the one video. It was just a matter of three or four seconds. Then, 31 seconds later the amount of time for Mr. McNutt to walk across the easement...another shot. The fourth shot sounds like the rst three. Lee Spees Jr. is begging for his life while hes laying on the ground bleeding. Then, seven seconds later, you hear several more shots, this time its the 9 mm going off. He is just shooting it off as quickly as he can. The denition of rst degree murder is deciding to kill someone and then doing so. Mr. McNutt walked to his home, armed himself and then shot-shot-shot. Thirty seconds later, he was shooting again. He decided to kill and he did so, Weed said. Looking to counter Weeds argument, defense attorney Davis said the evidence in this case is somewhat simple. This attaches to one event that took place over the span of 30-40 minutes. There were times (of the disagreement) not shown on the video. One group had a number of family members to survive (to testify). Mr. McNutt lost some of the members of his family with the death of his wife (Diane McNutt). Since his wife had died, if he were a dishonest man, he would have had a memory recovery. He would have told you what he could clearly remember in the framework of the evidence. But he didnt do that. They are saying this man killed two people and maimed another for tearing down a fence. But this day was different. The state would have you believe his actions were simply over (the act) of them (the Spees) tearing down a fence. But this was not a typical day. Mr. McNutt did not start nor is there any evidence he was involved in the argument that led to this case. Diane came in from work. She gets over on their side of the property and starts yap, yap, yapping. You dont see Mr. McNutt involved. He is just standing there holding his dog. Diane McNutt was accosted by Lee Spees Jr. (His brother) David comes out thinking he might need a witness. Oddly enough, the video does not show anyone tearing up a fence. What it does show is Diane McNutt and her mouth going and going. There was a dispute. It was very heated on both sides with the two women (Diane McNutt and David Spees ance) threatening to ght. She was being outmaneuvered 5 to 1, like a deer being circled by a pack of coyotes. Mr. McNutt cant hear too well, but he can see and he can read body language. Nobody was talking about a fence at that pointHe (McNutt) starts to feel a seizure coming on because this (situation) was not like the 40 times beforePaul McNutt was afraiddid he have a reasonable belief she (his wife) was in imminent danger? If you nd he had a reasonable belief to fear for his wife, then you must nd him not guilty, Davis concluded. In rebutting Davis defense, Weed shared these parting words with the jury: When Mr. McNutt shot, what was happening or about to happen? Nothing. The law says there must be an imminent (threat). You just cant start walking up to people and blowing them away. The law does not give you a license to kill. (Above) One video captured the beginning of the argument between Diane McNutt and the Spees family. The verbal disagreement escalated to violence and led to the shooting deaths of Lee Spees Sr. and his son, Lee Spees Jr. A second son, David Spees, was critically injured and has lost the use of one arm. (Left) Evidence markers capture the scattered pattern of 9mm bullets at the scene Road. MCNUTT VERDICT Continued from page 1 McNutt had reasonable belief wife was in imminent danger?

A-4 Taco Times October 2, 2013 Living (From left) City Manager Bob Brown, Council members Shirlie Hampton and Mike Deming are pictured with Debra McGrew and Mayor Daryll Gunter, holding a proclamation of domestic violence awareness, along with Cynthia Monroe-Harris and council members Venita Woodfaulk and Don Cook. Saluting the month of October as Domestic Violence Month, Refuge House will host a luncheon, Behind Closed Doors, on Wednesday, Oct. 16, at Sandys Cafe and Gallery, 121 S. Jefferson Street. We invite everyone in the community to participate in this awareness campaign and to honor the women who have survived domestic violence, said Program Director Debra McGrew for Refuge House. We strive to eliminate the conditions which allow such violence to continue. Refuge House is also challenged to provide direct services to battered women and their children, and all sexual assault survivors. McGrew acknowleges the important role that law enforcement plays in a coordinated community response to domestic violence. Ofcers are often the rst ones on the scene and can help connect victims to the areas resources, she said. According to McGrew, 85 percent of domestic violence victims are women. Historically, females have been most often victimized by someone they knew--almost onethird of female homicide victims are killed by an intimate partner. She admits, however, that most cases of domestic violence are never reported to the police. Thats the reason these awareness campaigns are so important. We want to send a strong message of support to those who have been battered, and we want to hold batterers accountable for their crimes. The outreach ofce can be reached at 223-3981 if you wish to speak at the luncheon. Should you require the hotline, please call 584-8808. Behind Closed Doors Luncheon spotlights domestic violence Lepoma dances her way to rst placeDoris Lepoma of Perry took rst place in prociency ratings during the Fred Astaire Dance Studio Gatsby Challenge held recently at the RitzCarlton Hotel in Sarasota.

That rst year featured 84 campers from around Florida between the ages 8 and 15. It went so well that this summer we had 133 campers, Whiteld said, noting that they almost hit their maximum occupancy. Additionally, Camp Corral expanded to a second Florida 4-H facility at Camp Timpoochee in Niceville to help cater to children from the Panhandle. The idea is to give these kids the best week of their lives, Whiteld said. Give them a week where they can just be kids. At Camp Ocala, the staff is made up of mostly University of Florida students and consists of six days of activities, including archery, kayaking, crafts and more. During their stay, they get a chance to talk with other children who are dealing with similar issues. Whiteld notes many of the recent deployments overseas have consisted of National Guard and reserve troops, whose families are not necessarily living around other military families. She added that in some counties, there may be only one or two military families, so Camp Corral is the childrens rst opportunity to meet other military children. This is one of the most important things we do, Whiteld said. She has been working at Camp Ocala for the past ve years, joining the full-time staff three years ago. The camp is located on the shore of Sellers Lake in the Ocala National Forest, near Juniper. In addition to the usual cabins, dining hall and sports elds, Camp Ocala features an interactive nature center housing a variety of native sh, amphibians and reptiles. For more information about Camp Corral, visit www.campcorral.org.

The clerk reported that the man had attempted to purchase a second prepaid debit card, but the transaction was declined. The store employee also related that the man was bleeding from the arm; he was described as a tall, white male, with tattoos on his right arm and a lazy eye. Ofcers then checked at Kmart to see if any of the stolen credit cards had been used at that location; there, they discovered that a man matching that description had been at the store and purchased 20 $100 prepaid gift cards. The clerk at Kmart said the suspect was driving a red Ford F-150 truck, ofcers said in their report. A BOLO (be on the look out) was issued for the suspects and the vehicle. A short time later, law enforcement dispatchers advised that a call was reported at Noveds trailer park regarding a man in a red truck attempting to sell credit cards. Taylor County Sheriffs Ofce (TCSO) Deputy Lindsey Shaw was dispatched to the scene. Deputy Shaw advised dispatch that she had arrived at Noveds and that the vehicle was located and that it sped away southbound on Highway 19, Ptl. Garrett Campbell reported. Shaw took the lead in pursuing the vehicle, followed by TCSO Sgt. Charles Campbell and assisted by PPD units Ptl. Ricky Dice and Ptl. Chad Cannon. The chase entered into Lafayette County and ended when the suspect (later identied as John Hutchins, 40) reached a dead end, made a u-turn, sideswiped Shaws vehicle and crashed head-on with (Sgt.) Campbells patrol vehicle. Ofcers also reported that during the chase the suspects threw items out of their vehicle (toward the pursuing patrol cars), including backpacks, purses, tools, a full soda bottle and items that were on re. The windshield of Shaws patrol car was busted as well as a headlight. The second suspect in the case, who was a passenger in the vehicle with Hutchins, was identied as Heather Hutchins, also 40. Both suspects gave Oklahoma addresses. The suspects were taken into custody at gunpoint and booked at the Lafayette County Jail on a variety of charges including burglary of vehicle and theft. Further investigation uncovered that the vehicle that they were eeing in was reported stolen from a dealership in Ada, Okla. to lead Taylor County to an 8-6 victory. We are looking forward to the opportunity to do something that hasnt been done around here for 20 years, the coach said.
