A Commerce man sentenced last year to life in prison is now facing a second murder charge stemming from the death of his wife.
Robert Clark pled guilty to murdering his 6-year-old grandson in June and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Last week, a Jackson County grand jury indicted him on murder charges in the death of his wife, Linda, who died in October.
Michael Levigne, a kindergarten student at Commerce Primary School, was killed by a gunshot wound to the chest in the Troy Street, Commerce, home of his grandparents. Police say Clark shot his wife, Linda Dale Clark, 58, in the chest/stomach area before he himself was shot by police officers after he fired a weapon at them. Police believe Clark shot and killed his grandson in a fit of rage over a watermelon.
