Charles Tinker (Taney County mugshot)

Charles Tinker was fed up with his roommate not paying his share of the rent at their Missouri home, authorities allege. So the octogenarian drank four shots of whiskey and allegedly shot him. He later reportedly told authorities, “He pushed my buttons.”

Tinker is charged with second-degree murder in the killing of 52-year-old Jon Lovelace at her home in Bradleyville, an unincorporated community in southern Missouri.
