WIGGINS, MS (WLOX) - The man accused in the death of a Stone County businessman made his initial appearance in court Monday. Capital murder suspect Jody Parks of Biloxi is one of three people arrested in connection with Timmy Garrison's death.

After court, Parks asked a sheriff deputy if he could set up a meeting with the judge. The 21-year-old said,"I need to ask him a very important question."

Then Parks said, "I want to apologize."

But the deputy told him it's not the appropriate time for that. During his court appearance, Parks seemed calm. He even asked the judge for water. Personal information about Parks came to light at court. He is not married and has no children. The murder suspect won't get bail and asked for a court appointed attorney.

Parks was captured Friday by investigators, and taken from Biloxi to Wiggins for booking. An autopsy report indicates Garrison was beaten with a heavy object, maybe a baseball bat. There were also stab wounds to the back of victim's neck.

Garrison's wife, Evelyn, and her childhood friend Emmett Entrekin are also charged in Garrison's death. They're accused of conspiracy to commit murder. No word yet on a motive for the murder.
