HENNING, TN -
(WMC-TV) - New indictments filed reveal details behind the violent plans of a former state corrections officer and his son nearly two years after the murders of two West Tennessee postal workers.
The Commercial Appeal reported that the indictment filed this week showed that Chastain Montgomery, Sr. and his son had already robbed two banks.
The indictment also revealed they may have been plotting another bank robbery following the deadly shootings of Paula Robinson and Judy Spray inside the Henning, Tennessee post office on October 18, 2010.
Eight days after those murders, the indictment showed the Montgomerys stole a vehicle before robbing two banks in the Nashville area.
On Valentine's Day last year, Chastain Montgomery, Jr. stole another vehicle in Nashville and drove to Mason, Tennessee with at least three loaded guns.
The indictment showed his father followed in another stolen car with more guns, ski masks, and latex gloves.
That was when police caught up with the two, ending in a shootout that killed the younger Montgomery.
Chastain Montgomery, Sr. was arrested and later confessed to the post office shootings. He was indicted on the post office murders.
The new indictment adds bank robbery counts and weapon charges.
Chastain Montgomery, Sr. will undergo mental evaluation and an MRI bran scan this week to determine if he is eligible for the death penalty.
