In 1990, when Richard Parker faced an accusation that he'd burned down a cabin he was renovating for another couple, attorney Jon Setzer believed in his son-in-law's innocence and helped to defend him.
"He felt that the suggestion that Richard had been guilty of arson was not justified," attorney George Cate said of his former longtime law partner, in an interview with the Associated Press. "He was supporting his son-in-law at that time."
In a plea deal, Parker eventually was given four years' probation and paid $40,000 restitution. But the cabin's owners, Danny and Rosemary Martin, never forgot that incident – and when they heard a package bomb had killed Jon Setzer and fatally injured his wife, Marian, at their rural Tennessee home on Feb. 10, the Martins made a swift mental connection.
"I told my wife… Richard Parker had killed the Setzers," Danny Martin told the AP.
