Roy Bell To Appear In Court Nov. 15 On Murder Charges

Roy Bell

A man accused of killing a former Knox woman will appear in Fulton Superior Court on Nov. 15 for a pretrial hearing.

Wilma Upsall was shot and killed after a burglary incident at the home she shared with her daughter and son-in-law in Rochester. In November 2011, Roy Bell, William Scroggs, and Jason Miller reportedly broke into the house to steal items and found Upsall in the home. She was then allegedly tied to a chair and shot to death.

Bell is the suspected shooter in the incident. Miller told police that he and Scroggs were outside of the residence when the shots were fired, and Bell allegedly said later that Upsall could identify him so he shot her.

Bell has been charged with murder and if he is found guilty, he could face the death penalty.
