A judge in Hillsville is expected to sentence two Carroll County brothers tomorrow.
Willie Gammon pled guilty to shooting his father in Carroll County, but told a probation officer he fired AFTER his dad pulled a gun.
Willie Gammon admitted planning Gary Gammon's murder in an earlier statement to police.
That's consistent with yesterday's testimony from his 18 year- old half- brother Chris Gammon, who also pled guilty.
The brothers killed their father and shot their stepmother, Rebecca Gammon in 1994.

If pictures are worth a thousand words,in this case, these pictures are getting some pretty harsh ones. I THINK IT'S INSULTING AND I THINK IT'S RIDICULOUS AND I THINK IT SHOULD BE PUNISHABLE BY CRIME. IN GENERAL, I THINK IT'S DISGUSTING HOW THEY MAKE THEIR MONEY.
Tabloid photos of little Jonbenet Ramsey hit newsstands nationwide on Monday. 1.3 million pairs of eyes saw what investigators had tried to keep so secret for so long. standup
The release of the photos has added an extra burden to an already beleaguered community.
The sheriff's department now has to investigate who leaked the pictures.
The coroner's office now must turn itself inside out looking for who in their ranks betrayed them, but amid all that, a small victory. The Globe agreed in an out of court settlement to give back the pictures, and not publish any new ones. One bright spot in a circus of activity that has nothing to do with solving the case. MADELINE MASON/DEPUTY COUNTY ATTORNEY FR BOULDER COUNTY:
So the family is doing their own investigating, they've hired this man, John Douglas to help put together a psychological profile of the would be killer. He's the same man that inspired the character in the movie Silence of the Lambs, the best money can buy.
The intense media scrutiny continues from all sides, and while some press accounts are making in onto store shelves here in Boulder, the Globe never really made it anywhere here.
Most went back to the distributor, and with no new pictures on the horizon.
Most people are back to waiting and wondering what comes next.

A spokesman for the family says it wants to leave no stone unturned in searching for JonBenet's killer.

In case you just started following this case, JonBenet's mother is a former Miss West Virginia.
