I just killed Mr.MoreA CONFLUENCE OF RIVERSin the tradition of Willie Morris or Howard BahrOn an early July morning, 1931, seventeen year old Wiley Jennings catches the milk truck into town, walks into the Ashe County, Mississippi sheriffs office.

I just killed Mr. Marcus Junior, he announces.Torie Jennings, Wileys mother, through a set of circumstances, becomes the matriarch of a rural deep south family and community rather than become a sharecroppers wife. Her infant son Wiley is permanently altered by an encounter with yellow jackets. Son Warren discovers the guitar via a black farm hand, blues player. Tories husband dies and she subsequently develops a relationship with a New Orleans businessman, Maurice Cartot. The two of them have a perfect year.Torie realizes that she can no longer do justice to both Maurice and to family and community.

She terminates the relationship. Warren leaves home with a Texas String Band, seems destined to become the Elvis of Western Swing. Mr. Marcus Kyle, Jr. forces the bank to fore-close on a significant portion of the Jennings property. Somebody ought a kill the SOB, is voiced in a family meeting.

Nobody steps up. The literal thinking Wiley determines to, and does, do the killing.Nobody, including the prosecution, wants to send Wiley to Parchman Prison, or worse. Torie will not allow a plea of insanity. She contacts Maurice for moral support. Maurice sends his main man to Texas to find Warren. Warren shows up in the middle of the trial, implies that, Anybody might have shot the bastard- I might a done it myself. Having created doubt in the jurys mind, Warren disappears.

He knows that, being a person of interest in a case of capital murder, he can never again play in a big time Texas music hall: be on the radio, make records. Torie loses a son, gets one back.
