Jury finds fmr. doctor guilty in murder case of Ralph "Critterman" McNeill

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A jury Friday found former Montgomery doctor David Nash in the murder-for-hire case of Ralph "Critterman" McNeill.

Nash could be sentenced to life in prison without parole for the crime.

Nash was accused of hiring two cousins, Jeremy and Kendall Riley, to kill McNeill whose body was found less than 50 feet from his burned out pickup truck in January 2011.

Nash's then-fiance, Serena English, was said to be in a heated custody battle with McNeill at the time of his death. English testified against Nash at trial.

"This is about love, it's about women and about money. Bottom line," said Kenneth Gibbs, a Deputy District Attorney for Montgomery County. "I think it was about his love for Serena and his desire to keep her happy and please her. "

The defense plans to appeal the verdict.

"We just don't think the evidence was there. There wasn't enough corroboration," said Susan James, Nash's attorney. "We obviously are disappointed, but plan to fight the fight. We plan to file a post-trial motion for judgment of acquittal and certainly any appeals that might follow."

Both English and Jeremy Riley have already pleaded guilty to their roles in the murder.

Kendall Riley stood trial for the man's murder earlier in 2013 but a hung jury resulted in a mistrial.
