Wells’ parents believe the boy was killed while protecting his mother from his father, Derrell Williams.
“I just told her the other day to get a restraining order on him because she was afraid,” Renita’s mother Rachelle Wells told the station.
Williams was arrested less an hour after their bodies were found, after he led police on a brief high-speed chase. He faces charges unrelated to their deaths, including felony eluding police, possession of drugs and gun charges.
While Williams has not been charged in the deaths of his wife and son, police confirmed they were not looking for any suspects in their murders.
