NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A man who was convicted for his role in a 2007 murder will serve more than a dozen years behind bars.
Officials say Billy Wilson Everett was formally sentenced Friday to 13 years — which is what jurors recommended back in September. Everett was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter, concealment of a dead body and defilement of a dead body.
Everett was one of four people indicted in June 2016 for the murder of 26-year-old Lori Jordan, of Virginia Beach. Jordan’s body was found in December 2007 in a wooded area in the Barraud Park section of Norfolk.
The indictments came following an extensive four-year investigation.
The fourth suspect, Duane Phillip Goodson, pleaded guilty last October to misdemeanor charge of illegal disposal of a bead body. Court records show he was sentenced to one year in prison.
