Friend: Shackelford marriage was 'never good' - The Decatur Daily

Monday, April 03, 2017

Minnie Shackelford’s residence.When asked about Minnie Shackelford’s relationship with husband Andreas Shackelford, her tone changed.“No, it was never good,” Tapscott said of the Shackelfords' marriage. “She knew he wasn’t good for her, but she was so forgiving.”Tapscott said Minnie Shackelford recently wanted to file for divorce, but she opted to “give it another try.” No divorce documents for Minnie Shackelford or Andreas Shackelford were filed.Tapscott said she was never close to Andreas Shackelford, and that Andreas Shackelford was not Rankin’s father.Rankin could not be reached for comment.Pamela Bolding, director of the Neighborhood Christian Center, said Minnie Shackelford used to attend the center’s Tuesday night women’s Bible study, but that she had not regularly attended in the past six months.“She always had positive insight into our studies and was an encouragement to all,” Bolding said in an email.According to police, the couple was married and living together at the time of the killing, but court documents show Andreas Shackelford provided a Hillsboro address to authorities.Andreas Shackelford’s booking report shows he was employed by Wayne Farms in Decatur, but listed his employer as “none” in court documents."Shackelford continually lied about his whereabouts during the investigation and continually misled investigators," Decatur police Detective Montrez Payton said in an affidavit filed with the court at the time of his arrest. Edward Blair will represent Shackelford in court. He did not return a request for comment.The preliminary hearing for this case is set for March 20 at 9 a.m. at the Morgan County Courthouse.Visitation for Minnie Shackelford will be Friday from 1 to 8 p.m. at Johnson Funeral Home in Prentiss, Mississippi. Her funeral will be Saturday at 11 a.m. at Springhill Missionary Baptist Church, also in Prentiss.
