Posted: Updated:
GAINESVILLE, Ga. -

A man has pleaded guilty to malice murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole in a 2010 Valentine's Day slaying that authorities have described as a murder-for-hire plot.

The Times of Gainesville reports (http://bit.ly/VYsgmz ) that Reginald Coleman pleaded guilty Monday in the shooting death of 42-year-old Richard Schoeck of Snellville. Authorities say he was killed as he waited for his wife at a park in the small town of Lula to exchange gifts.

Also charged in the case is Schoeck's wife, Stacey. Her trial is pending.

Authorities say Coleman was paid $10,000 to kill Richard Schoeck. Earlier, an Austell woman was sentenced to life in prison for her role in the plot.
