A 32-year-old Caldwell man was sentenced to 50 years in prison on Friday for his role in the death of a Rockdale woman.
Edward Brannon Barry pleaded guilty to first-degree felony murder in April. He was one of four people charged after Emily Hacker's body was found in a shallow grave in Burleson County after she was reported missing in January 2017.
Candice Nicole Jones, 32, of Rockdale was sentenced to 50 years in prison Aug. 1 after agreeing to a plea deal.
Ashley Yvonne Wesson-Zawadzke and John Wayne Stewart, both of Somerville, were indicted in the case in February 2017 by a Milam County grand jury.
A fifth person, Kevin Cormier, 30, of Caldwell was charged in the investigation with tampering with physical evidence of a corpse.
According to a preliminary autopsy report, Hacker had been killed by blunt force trauma.
Barry waived his right to appeal as part of the plea agreement with the Milam County District Attorney's Office
