Timothy Nelson Evans was sentenced to death by lethal injection Friday for the murder of Wenda Holling on Jan. 2., 2010.
Evans, 56, stood silently as Circuit Court Judge Lisa Dodson read the verdict.
After the sentence was handed down, Evans was allowed to address the court, jury, and Holling's family.
"Every day since this has happened, I have regretted it," Evans said. "I have prepared for this day. I loved her and I am truly sorry."
Friday's sentence was the culmination of a five-day trial this week in Hancock County Circuit Court.
