Investigator describes oath taken before Silverhill slaying by teens

About 10 hours before four teens allegedly executed a plot to rob, kill and burn a Silverhill man, Amen Lee Robert Wellock held what appeared to be a gun to the chest of one of his co-defendants and asked if he “would accept this mission,” according to court testimony.

Danny “Chubbs” Weaver responded, “I accept the mission” during ceremony, said Baldwin County Sheriff’s Investigator Bret Lankford.

Lankford, who testified at Wellock’s preliminary hearing Thursday, was describing some of the evidence that resulted in the 17-year-old Robertsdale teen being charged with conspiracy to commit murder in the Jan. 28 slaying of 51-year-old Robert “Bob” Aitcheson
