Kenneth Wayne Adams accused of fatally shooting and killing William Allen

Adams was reportedly in his vehicle behind a logging truck that had been working on his property when he attempted to turn right onto Oak Grove Road. Brantley reportedly got in front of Adams’ truck and came around the driver’s side toward the driver’s window, according to dash cam video obtained from Adams’ truck. However, the entire ordeal took place out of camera view, but audio caught a verbal altercation followed by gunshots. Adams then called 911, claiming that a man had approached him with a gun and that he was lying down on Rooker Lane, and asked that deputies be dispatched quickly.

Both Adams and Brantley were found to be armed after Sergeant Terry Johnson arrived. Brantley’s pistol was found out of its holster near his feet. Lead investigator Kristin King thought Brantley was not armed when he walked around Adams’ truck. King blamed Adams, calling him a “bully” and an assaulter in an interrogation video. The State argued that Brantley took the gun from him alone after he was shot. The gun was found with a fully loaded magazine and one round in the chamber.

Jurors visited the scene after Circuit Court Judge Chadwick Wise granted the defense’s request on the final day of the trial. They walked up and down Rooker Lane from one end to the other and were able to analyze the distance from the eyewitness position to the shooting site, as well as the conditions there.

Both sides finished their case on Friday afternoon, January 27, but the jurors decided to continue deliberations into the evening rather than return the next morning. They let Judge Wise know that they had reached a conclusion just before 9:00 p.m. m. and that it was a “not guilty” verdict, much to Adams’ delight and relief.
