CHIPPEWA FALLS (WKOW) -- A state prison inmate behind bars for sexually assaulting a girl is accused of trying to arrange to have the girl and another woman killed.
Michael Parrish, 27, is incarcerated at the Stanley Correctional Institution. He is charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit first-degree intentional homicide and delivery of a prescription drug.
According to a criminal complaint, a prison informant told state investigators Parrish was looking for someone who could kill two Rusk County women, ages 20 and 25.
The complaint says the 20-year-old is Parrish's victim, who was 15 at the time of the sexual assault. The other woman initially reported the crime.
Prosecutors say Parrish sent some crushed prescription drugs to an undercover agent, posing as a hit man, as a down payment for the murders.
