Giles pleads guilty to two counts of murder

Timothy Giles, 30, from Moweaqua, pleaded guilty to two counts of first degree murder of two women on Tuesday. Giles has been held in the Macon County Jail on $5 million bond since his arrest in 2011.

He also pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree murder after he repeatedly stabbed Casey Eaton. Pleading guilty means Giles agreed to a life sentence in prison without parole.

After pleading guilty, charges of solicitation of murder against Giles were dropped as part of the plea deal. Giles was charged because he allegedly tried to hire a fellow jail inmate to kill Casey Eaton after his arrest.

Additional charges of home invasion, aggravated battery with a firearm and aggravated cruelty to animals were also dropped.

The case sources back to August 2011 when he allegedly killed Cindanett Eaton, 57, and her daughter Lindsey, 23, in their home in Harristown.

Giles and Casey Eaton were in a child custody dispute before the night she was attacked by Giles where he murdered her mother and sister.

The sentencing hearing is set for April 4. During this hearing those who were harmed by Giles’ crimes will testify how Giles actions affected their lives.

Katrina Giles, 23, from Moweaqua, also faces first degree murder charges in the case.

Giles allegedly helped plan and cover up the murders. She will be in court for a pretrial hearing on March 13.
