John Franklin Kenney, 72, killed Mel Grimes and Elizabeth Grimes. The true story of Kenney and the Grimes has been made into a one hour TV episode of Dateline. NBC made “Trouble On The Hill” to re-enact the story of Kenney and the Grimes.
Kenney had hauled a boulder weighing one ton up to a piece of land that divided his and the Grimes’ property. Kenney left the boulder on the land to claim his ownership. The Grimes had a dispute with Kenney as they claimed the land belonged to them. Kenney and Grimes had a long quarrel that was fueled with lawsuits, counter lawsuits and restraining orders. The dispute lasted for about 1 year.
Finally, Kenney killed Mel and Elizabeth Grimes on Jan 29 2007. Kenney was convicted and sentenced to life in prison, without the possibility of parole.
