Henry County Man Pleads Guilty to Capital Murder; Sentenced to Life

A Henry County man charged with capital murder was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Thirty-two-year-old Michael Harrison pled guilty to killing another man and his wife five years ago.

Thirty-two-year-old Marvin Gillis and his 19-year-old wife Tish were gunned down during an argument over a camper trailer.

Testimony in Harrison’s trial was supposed to begin Tuesday in Abbeville, but defense attorneys chose to enter the guilty plea instead.

    I would just like to say Tish ann was my Aunt and i miss her very much. Harrison diserves the punishment he got but i think he should got the death sentence. To go out and kill someone for no reason there must be something seriously wrong with him. My aunt was young and didnt deserve that. She was just starting her life out. And was very happy bout her new marriage. Everyone misses her so much. All Ive got to say is Michael you deserve everything you get. To go and kill to innocent people there has to be something messed up in your mind. I just want to know why he did it and why my aunt. She was to young.
