A Mississippi man who was executed for shooting dead his estranged wife admitted just before he died to also killing his sister-in-law, authorities revealed on Monday.

David Neal Cox, 50, told his attorneys he killed his sister-in-law Felicia Cox in 2007 and provided details on where her remains could be found before he was executed on Nov. 17 over the 2010 slaying of his wife.

The article goes on to state the following:

District Attorney John Weddle said at a news conference on Monday that Cox had been a longtime suspect in his sister-in-law’s disappearance.


Cox revealed the details of Felecia‘s death to his attorneys, the report says.

According to attorneys with the Office of Capital Post-Conviction Counsel, “Mr. Cox felt deep remorse and wanted to bring closure to her family,” WLBT reports.

Authorities have not said how or why Felecia was killed, nor did they disclose the exact location Cox provided. Felecia disappeared in July 2007 after she visited Cox’s estranged wife, Kim Kirk Cox, in Pontotoc. Investigators are preparing to search there.

“We would like to stress that locating the remains of Felecia Cox is not a foregone conclusion,” Weddle said. “We are hopeful that the information is accurate and that recovery efforts will be successful so that Felecia’s family may give her a proper burial.”

Cox was put to death at the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman after filing court papers calling himself “worthy of death.” In addition to killing his wife, he also reportedly sexually assaulted her young daughter.
