Police say the Arkansas couple allegedly killed by a man arrested in Wisconsin had been shot in the head and their bodies dragged by an all-terrain vehicle.
Investigators initially believed Ben and Mary Odell died of blunt force trauma because their bodies were so badly injured. But, they determined those injuries were caused when their bodies were tied to the ATV and dragged about 400 feet behind their home in Nashville, Arkansas.
Prosecuting attorney Tom Cooper says it looked like the couple had been beaten.
