STONE COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

The man accused of hiring a hit man to murder a Stone County businessman pleaded guilty to murder on Saturday. 

According to Crosby Parker, Emmett Entriken was sentenced to life after entering the plea.

In January 2015, Evelyn Garrison hired Entriken to kill her husband, Timmy Garrison. Entriken hired Jody Parks to carry out the murder.

“At his plea, Entrekin stated that Evelyn had asked him to help find someone to kill her husband and that he introduced Evelyn and Parks. Entrekin denied any other involvement. However, investigators determined that Entrekin had purchased the murder weapon with Parks the night of the murder and had attempted to dispose of the murder weapon by placing it in a sewage pipe on his family’s property in Saucier”, said Assistant District Attorney Matthew Burrell.

Timmy's body was found outside of a business he co-owned. 

The trial for the case was set to begin Monday in Stone County.
