A Millington man pled guilty earlier this week to murdering two neighbors last Friday in Covington to killing a father and daughter a month later in Drummonds according to Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich. 

Michael Cullum, 47, was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the first degree murders of Robert Bailey, 66, and his 41-year old daughter Tammie Bailey. Both of them were found shot to death in their home on Glenn Springs Road July of 2016.

On Wednesday, October 11 Cullum was in Criminal Court in Memphis where he pled guilty to the first-degree murders of Rhonda Bishop Dukes, 49, and Brenda Dukes, 47, and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

The two women were found shot in the head in June of 2016 in their home on the 9400 block of Matthews Road in Millington.

Cullum entered Alford pleas in Shelby County in which a defendant does not admit guilt, but agrees that there is sufficient evidence for a conviction in trial. An Alford plea has the same legal effect as a guilty plea.

The Shelby County case was handled by Ass. Dist. Attorney Jason Poyner.
