MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

There are new details in a high profile murder-for-hire case. Wednesday, one of the suspects in the murder case of Ralph "Critterman" McNeill was sentenced.

Jeremy Riley will spend the next 25 years behind bars after pleading guilty to capital murder.

Prosecutors say Riley and his cousin, Kindall Riley, were the two men paid to kill McNeill in January 2011.

Kindall's first trial ended in a hung jury. A new trial is scheduled for December.

Last week former Montgomery doctor David Nash was found guilty of hiring the Rileys to kill McNeill. Nash is expected to be sentenced to life without parole after the death penalty was taken off the table.

Nash's fiance, Serena English, was also implicated in the case and pleaded guilty. Her sentencing hearing is scheduled for September 10th.
