Ex-Alabama physician again found guilty in murder-for-hire scheme


MONTGOMERY, Alabama — A former physician has been found guilty for a second time in a murder-for-hire scheme.

Multiple news outlets report David Nash was convicted of felony murder Thursday in the death Ralph McNeil, who was also known as critter man because trapped unwanted animals.

Authorities have said Nash's girlfriend was in a custody dispute with McNeil, her ex-boyfriend, which prompted the two to pay a pair of cousins about $9,000 to kill the man. The woman has been convicted of murder.

In January 2014, a Montgomery County judge ordered a new trial because Nash's attorneys said two jurors lied when the defense was selecting a panel. Nash was sentenced in the first trial to life in prison.
