GAINESVILLE, TX - A man who shot and killed another man at a party in Cooke County last summer is headed to prison a convicted murderer.

It took a jury less than an hour to find 35-year-old Adrian Lex Parker guilty of murder Friday. He was sentenced to 55 years in prison.

Parker got into an argument with 45-year-old Richard Charles Sutton over money and a borrowed Jeep last July at a home on County Road 135.

Cooke County District Attorney Janice Warder says Parker will be eligible for a parole hearing after he has served half his sentence.
