WIGGINS, Miss. (AP) - A judge has granted a request to collect DNA samples from two men accused in a contract killing of a Ramsey Springs businessman earlier this year.

The Sun Herald (https://bit.ly/1Jow2sn ) reports that Assistant District Attorney Matthew Burrell recently told Stone County Circuit Court Judge Larry Bourgeois that DNA samples from 65-year-old Emmett Entrekin and 21-year-old Jody Parks are needed to make DNA comparisons to the evidence in the Jan. 24 killing of Timothy “Timmy” Garrison Sr.

Authorities 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. Investigators say Entrekin has admitted to having offered Parks $15,000 to kill Timmy Garrison. The victim was found beaten and stabbed outside of a business he co-owned.
