According to Brunswick Beacon news archives, Larrimore gave Daniel Ray McMillian $900 and a gun to kill Edwards.

McMillian was spared the death penalty in exchange for testifying.

McMillian was sentenced to life in prison, but he died in 1999, according to online records.

The state’s current sentencing law eliminates parole for crimes committed after October 1, 1994, however, Larrimore was sentenced under previous guidelines.
