David Womack allegedly assaulted his girlfriend, set a house on fire, and murdered his brother with a pink shotgun

Independence, Missouri, man David Womack allegedly terrorized his girlfriend, his family, and two neighborhoods full of people this week in a series of horrendous crimes.

On Tuesday afternoon, Womack — a 46-year-old man who was out of prison after serving a 26-year sentence for assault and endangering the welfare of a child, according to KMBC — was at the home he shares with his live-in girlfriend. Here’s how it happened, according to a probable-cause statement issued by the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office.

It all began when Womack and his girlfriend went to pick up his truck

from the body shop. Womack backhanded her in the chest while in the car,

and when they got home, she told him that he needed to leave. That set

him off on a spiral of absolute madness.
