The second of two murder suspects in the 2021 death and dismemberment of Cassidy Rainwater enters a guilty plea in Dallas County on Tuesday and will spend the rest of his life in prison.
Timothy Norton had been charged with kidnapping, murder and abandoning a corpse in connection to the disappearance of Rainwater.
Investigators tracked Rainwater and discovered what appeared to be human flesh in a freezer and her skeletal remains on the property of James Phelps in Lebanon.
Phelps entered an Alford plea a couple months ago which does not admit guilt but does concede there’s enough evidence for a conviction for his role in the murder.
Phelps was also sentenced to life in prison.
