ALLEGAN, MI (WHTC) - Two Allegan County men convicted of high-profile murders are making news.
Scott Wynne admitted in a recorded interview and a letter that he did kill Phil Timmerman of Hamilton at a farm outside of Allegan 19 years ago due to being upset that Wynne’s mother leased land to the victim that Wynne had considered his own. Wynne is currently serving a life sentence without parole, and had previously said that another person actually committed the crime, a claim that he now admits was a lie.
Meanwhile, a request for a court-appointed attorney by Theodore Williams was rejected by Allegan County Circuit Court Judge Kevin Cronin. Williams is seeking to be released from a psychiatric center after raping and killing two Kent County girls in the 1960’s. Now age 75, he was convicted under a now-defunct state law that enables him to petition for parole.
