COLUMBIA, MS (WDAM) -

Two suspects were in court Tuesday to enter a plea in the double murder case of a Marion County couple.

Gerald and Rebecca Hutson were found dead in their Marion County home in July of 2012.

Shawn Louge, the couple's son, plead guilty to murdering his parents.

Louge could face up to two life sentences for the murders.

The second suspect involved, Thomas Nichols, was in the car when police arrested Louge. Nichols only plead guilty to a separate charge of being an accessory after the fact for taking a vehicle from the scene. He also pled guilty to another car theft that same day and could face up to 20 years in prison.

Both men are expected to be sentenced on Jan. 23.
