Ex-Pastor Tracy Burleson, Accused Of Convincing Son To Murder His Wife, Trial Begins

According to our source, Ex-Pastor Tracy Burleson is accused of convincing his son to kill his wife. Prosecutors say Tracy Burleson hired his son, William Fuller, to shoot his stepmother execution-style, in the back of the head in May of last year. He testified his father promised him life insurance money and a place to live in exchange for killing her.

William Fuller testified Tuesday in his father’s capital murder trial and painted his stepmother, Pauletta Burleson, as a monster. He says his father hated her just as much as he did and claims his father spent years trying to convince him to kill her.

Fuller explained to the jury that even though Tracy Burleson was miserable, he didn’t want to lose his church and refused to walk away from his marriage empty-handed. Pauletta’s sister Joyce Bingham believes Fuller was simply the pawn in her sister’s murder.

William Fuller claims his father asked him numerous times to kill his wife, even before he started his affair with Tyonne Palmer. Fuller began dating his father’s girlfriend after his stepmother’s murder. Tyonne Palmer is also charged with capital murder. She’s accused of helping Fuller destroy the murder weapon.

If convicted, Burleson could get life in prison without parole.
