James pleads guilty in triple slaying, avoids death sentence

GONZALES — In one night, a tearful Craig Godbold testified Tuesday, a robbery aimed at stealing a safe thought to contain gold and collectible coins changed everything for his family.

“In one night — in one night — my wife lost her whole family.

In one night. Her mother, her brother and her stepdad,” said Godbold, commander of the Natchez, Mississippi, Police Department’s criminal investigations.

Godbold was staring straight at defendant Bernard James, 27, 36344 Lorena Drive, Prairieville. James is one of five men accused in the brazen Gonzales-area home invasion more than two years ago that led to the slaying of Godbold’s in-laws, Shirley and Robert Irwin Marchand, and their 50-year-old son, Douglas Dooley, of Cross Plains, Tennessee.
