A stabbing at Mount Olive Correctional Center leads to another murder charge for Timothy R. Parsons. Parsons pleaded guilty to second-degree murder on Wednesday, July 12, 2017.
On Jan. 22, 2017, Parsons stabbed another inmate at Mount Olive with a shank. The victim, Eugene Anderson was serving sentences for child sex and pornography. The two men apparently had a long history of disagreements, and Anderson had allegedly paid another inmate to attack Parsons.
Parsons is serving two life sentences for the murder of his wife and mother-in-law in Boone County back in 2012. He faces another 10 to 40 years in prison for the new murder charge. He will be sentenced on Sept. 7, 2017.
