Dad BERESFORD A. CAMPBELL has been charged with murder in his fatal attack on his girlfriend, the mother of their 6-year-old son. The mother's body was found next to her car along the roadside, with the child still inside the car. So apparently, the @$$wipe killer not only didn't mind robbing this child of his mother, he felt perfectly entitled to perform the bloody deed right in front of the child and abandon him at the scene, too. Such a loving daddy. No doubt he'll blame his "prescription medication."

A Reidsville woman was killed Sunday in front of her 6-year-old child when authorities said the boy’s father attacked her along a roadway in Midway.
Beverly Wiley, 48, was pronounced dead at Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem, according to the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office.
At around 10:42 a.m. Sunday, authorities were called to 11942 Old Highway 52 in Midway to reports of an assault.
Deputies arrived to find Wiley lying beside a car parked along the side of the road, where she was bleeding from multiple wounds and being attended to by other motorists.
Among them was an off-duty Kernersville police officer who detained a man in connection with the attack.
The suspect was 54-year-old Beresford A. Campbell who shared a child and home with Wiley at 1325 Linville Dr. in Reidsville.
Deputies said the couple’s 6-year-old was in the woman’s car at the time of the attack, but was not injured.
Because of reports he had ingested a bottle of prescription medication, Campbell was taken to Lexington Memorial Hospital, where he was treated.
He was released from the hospital and taken to the Davidson County jail and charged with murder.
He is being held without bond.
The child was taken into custody by county social services workers and later released to other family members.
This is the fourth homicide in Davidson County so far this year, according to the sheriff’s office.
