When three teenagers entered Robert “Bob” Aitcheson’s Silverhill trailer last month, one climbed on top of the sleeping man, while another slipped a plastic bag over his head, according to court testimony.
After a struggle, Ian Aitcheson, the victim’s 16-year-old son, picked up a large butcher-type knife in the kitchen, Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office Cpl. Susan Gross testified Thursday. He handed it to Danny “Chubbs” Weaver “and tells him to make sure my dad is dead,” Gross said.
That is one of the scenarios investigators put together based on evolving and conflicting statements made by the four teenagers charged with capital murder and first-degree arson, Gross said.
