Who is Ross McFarland ?

An Alabama teenager was jailed for 50 years for killing his doctor father’s new fiancée in a rage after his dad got engaged to the woman just 11 months after the teen’s mom died.

Ross McFarland, 18, entered a guilty plea on Thursday in the murder of teacher Martha Jones ‘Marti’ White, 66 on October 17, 2019 in Auburn, Alabama.

Officials in Lee County said McFarland ‘harbored animosity’ toward the woman who got engaged to his father, Dr. John McFarland, just 11 months after his mother’s death.

Donna McFarland was a scientist who died in November 2018 aged just 45. She was a microbiology graduate who’d been married to John McFarland for 22 years.

She had two other children besides Ross, who are called Avery and Samuel.

Donna McFarland’s Facebook

Donna McFarland’s Facebook profile, which has not been updated since before her death, lists her relationship status as separated.

Police in the city of Auburn responded to a home and found White dead on the floor with a gunshot wound to her face.

White was herself a mother of two and grandmother of five, as well as a retired teacher from the city’s school district.

White’s daughter, Elizabeth Chaisson, issued a statement.

‘Today we come closer to getting justice for our dear mother, Marti White. She was a faithful and committed servant to EVERY child in her life, from the countless number of young students of hers to her loving family, children and her precious grandchildren,’ Chaisson said.

‘She dedicated her life to loving and showing compassion to those who needed it most. Until the end of her life, she sacrificed herself to help children in need. While we know this is a step towards earthly justice, we will never know true peace and justice until we meet again,” she added.

When authorities investigated the case, they found a Smith & Wesson .40-caliber pistol missing from Dr. McFarland’s home.

They eventually found a witness who was a close friend of Ross McFarland, who said he saw McFarland shoot White when she turned her head to look away, News 19 said.

Ross, the witness said, picked up the shell casing and fled.

Investigation

Investigators said McFarland admitted to fantasizing about killing other people in his community, including children, in a statement after his arrest.

McFarland was sentenced to 50 years in prison. He was denied juvenile delinquent status despite having no criminal record.

John McFarland serves as Medical Director for the Lee County Sheriff’s Office. He also works as an ER physician at East Alabama Medical Center.

McFarland has since remarried a retiree named Kathy Timberlake.
