Psycho For Love: Bryn Ellis killed Barry Odom to get him away from Cheryl McGee; Sentenced to life in prison

remember-the-victimsFrom Ellis’ appeal: On March 8, 2010, Barry Odom was killed in the parking lot outside of his apartment in Jackson, Mississippi. Aside from a 9:48 p.m. call to 911, Barry’s cell phone indicated that he had been talking to Cheryl McGee shortly before his death. Cheryl told authorities that Ellis killed Barry.

Ellis and Cheryl had been involved in a romantic relationship before Cheryl dated Barry. Ellis and Cheryl began seeing each other in 2006. Their daughter was born in 2007. During his relationship with Cheryl, Ellis was living with Katie Roberts, whom he had been seeing since 1996. However, in late 2008 or early 2009, Cheryl ended her relationship with
Ellis. According to Cheryl, Ellis did not want the relationship to end.

Cheryl began dating Barry during 2009. Cheryl later testified that Ellis had followed her after he discovered that she was seeing Barry. Cheryl also testified that Ellis had threatened to kill her and Barry if they did not stop seeing each other. Cheryl and Barry continued to see each other while taking steps to avoid Ellis.

Ellis learned about Cheryl’s relationship with Barry after he followed her to Barry’s house. Cheryl decided to go back to her own home after Barry told her that Ellis had followed her. While Cheryl was on her way home, Ellis pulled out of a gas station and followed her. When Cheryl arrived at home and got out of her car, Ellis confronted her and told her to get in his van. Cheryl complied. Ellis took Cheryl to a hotel room, where they began to argue. According to Cheryl, Ellis had been drinking. Because she was afraid of Ellis, who was armed with a pistol, Cheryl faked an asthma attack and told Ellis that she needed to go home to get her inhaler. Ellis drove Cheryl to her house, but he did not let her leave his van until the next morning. Cheryl testified that on numerous occasions, Ellis threatened to kill her and Barry if he saw them together. Cheryl did not believe that Ellis was serious about his threats, but she and Barry took precautions to avoid Ellis.

On March 8, 2010, Cheryl and Barry planned to meet at a hotel after they got off work. They planned to meet at a hotel to avoid Ellis, who knew where Barry lived. Before Cheryl met Barry at the hotel, she let Ellis park his van at her house and she took him to his own home. Because Ellis was running late, Cheryl called him and said they needed to meet
because she had plans that night. After dropping Ellis off at his house, Cheryl met Barry at the hotel sometime between 7:00 and 8:00 p.m.

Approximately an hour later, Cheryl left the hotel to pick up a prescription and check on her daughter. Cheryl planned to meet Barry after she put her daughter to bed. Later, Cheryl called Barry’s cell phone, but he did not answer.

At approximately 10:00 p.m., Barry’s neighbor, Justin Smith, found Barry lying in the parking lot of the apartment complex where they lived. Barry had been shot twice in the chest. Unfortunately, emergency responders were not able to save him. Authorities contacted Cheryl because her phone number was the last one that Barry had called. Cheryl implicated Ellis in Barry’s death.
