BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

According to Assistant District Attorney Matthew Burrell, two men accused in a contract killing of a Stone County businessman will have to submit DNA samples.

Burrell says a Stone County Circuit Court judge granted the DA's request for samples from 65-year-old Emmett Entrekin and 21-year-old Jody Parks to compare to evidence in the Jan. 24 killing of Timothy "Timmy" Garrison. Garrison was found beaten and stabbed outside of a business he co-owned.

Burrell says officials already have DNA from Garrison's 52-year-old wife, Evelyn Garrison, who, along with Entrekin, is charged with conspiracy to commit murder. Parks is charged with capital murder. According to investigators, Entrekin has admitted to having offered Parks $15,000 to kill Timmy Garrison.

The DA's office says the case is still pending presentation to a grand jury.
