The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - NATION | WORLD -

A West Vir­ginia man has pleaded guilty to killing a fel­low prison in­mate af­ter a dis­pute over a Bible verse.

Ti­mothy Par­sons pleaded guilty to the stab­bing death of Eu­gene An­der­son. Pros­e­cu­tors say Par­sons de­feated An­der­son in a game of Bible knowl­edge at the Mount Olive Cor­rec­tional In­sti­tute.

Af­ter the game, au­thor­i­ties say An­der­son tried to set up a prison hit on Par­sons. But pros­e­cu­tors say Par­sons stabbed An­der­son 20 times.

Par­sons was al­ready serv­ing a life sen­tence for killing his wife and mother-in-law in 2012. He is sched­uled to be sen­tenced on this lat­est mur­der charge in Septem­ber.
