Guilty plea from gunman in Ada pastor's murder
ADA, Okla. (KTEN) — Kahlil Square, accused in the the 2021 shooting that took the life of Ada pastor David Evans, has entered a guilty plea.
The Pontotoc County court clerk's office said Square accepted a "blind plea" on Thursday. That means the judge in his case will receive evidence and other case materials through a pre-sentence investigation.
Square's sentencing is set for November 15.
The victim's wife, Kristie Evans, pleaded guilty to first degree murder earlier this year and was sentenced to life in prison last month.
She told the court that years of abuse from her husband pushed her to ask Kahlil Square to shoot David Evans.
