One of 30-year-old Michael Barnhill’s victims was his wife Marlee, who was celebrating her birthday with Barnhill and friends. She would have turned 27 the next day.
“These were all good friends having a nice time together,” Carroll County Sheriff Clint Walker said after the shootings. “Michael Barnhill, however, became drunk and belligerent during the course of the evening. The others discouraged his drunkenness, and he became angry and combative.

According to the sheriff’s report, when Marlee refused to give her husband the keys to his truck, he went to the vehicle to retrieve a handgun.
Barnhill reportedly returned with the firearm, slapped a cigarette out of his wife’s hand and put a bullet in her chest. He then shot the party’s hosts, Jim and Brooks Harrell; neither of whom made it to the hospital alive.
“Marlee was trying to do the right thing to protect his life and the lives of other drivers,” Walker said.


Marlee had posted video on Facebook before the event where she shared beauty tips and spoke excitedly about seeing all of her friends at the big party.
“Happy March 1!!!! New month, New Goals, and my BIRTHDAY MONTH!” she excitedly posted while preparing for her big night.
Barnhill was arrested after a brief struggle with officers. He is charged with the three killings as well as two counts of attempted murder against a pair of party-goers who went into another room to protect the Harrells’ sleeping 10-year-old son.
Carroll County Sheriff Clint Walker said Wednesday that Barnhill is jailed without bond.
