WARRICK CO., IN (WFIE) -

One of four suspects in a Warrick County murder case entered a guilty plea on Monday for assisting a criminal.

Jade Stigall will face up to four years in prison and a $10,000 fine in connection with the death of 35-year-old Joseph Nelson of Martinsville, Indiana.

Authorities say Nelson died from a gunshot wound to the head. His body was found on a conveyor belt at Alcoa's Warrick power plant in February 2014.

The three others arrested with Stigall - David Lackey Jr., Shawn Grigsby, and Matt McCallister - face murder and conspiracy to commit murder charges in Nelson's death.

Court documents name McCallister as the shooter.
