MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A fourth and final person has pleaded guilty in the 2011 murder-for-hire of well-known River Region area exterminator Ralph "Critterman" McNeil.

According to a plea agreement, Kindall Riley, 22, pleaded guilty to felony murder and was sentenced to serve 25 years in prison. The sentence will run concurrently with a 20-year sentence he's serving in a second killing.

McNeil, 58, was found on the ground about 35 feet from his burned out Toyota pickup truck on Jan. 11, 2011.

Former doctor David Nash and his then-fiance, Serena English, and Kindall Riley's cousin Jeremy Riley have all already been convicted in the case.

It's believed that McNeil and English were engaged in a heated custody battle at the time of his death, and that Nash and English hired the cousins to Kill McNeil.
