Gail asked:

I’m sure Trethewey didn’t want to write anything more about her Mother’s murderer. But what ultimately has happened to him and her stepbrother?

Linda Rae I found a link to Big Joe's court appeal from 2001. In that document it indicates he was sent to prison in the 1985 timeframe for life for murder, kidnapping, terrorist threats, etc. His appeal was denied. I assume he is still in prison for his crimes.
Jodi Guerra I found this article that provides more information about her brother: I'm not able to find more current information.
Nora I googled the author and found a statement that Big Joe was released from prison in 2019.
