In a stunning admission that many in New Jersey law enforcement thought might never come, Larry Thompson, a 72-year-old inmate at the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola, confessed last month to being the triggerman in the infamous murder-for-hire death of Toms River socialite Maria Marshall in September 1984, authorities said, according to an article on nj.com.

Thompson was found not guilty of the crime in 1986, but Robert Marshall, Maria’s husband, was convicted of conspiracy to commit murder and sentenced to death. In 2006, with a moratorium on the death penalty in New Jersey, Marshall was resentenced to life imprisonment with no parole for 30 years. His first parole hearing will be in December.

Yesterday, the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office announced Thompson’s confession, essentially closing the case.
