Patric Pardee stated Ted told him that Ted and Ronnie had planned the murder and that is why he (Ted) went to work at Precision Fabrics in Greensboro, NC, so he could have an alibi by his time card. Ted also stated Ronnie (brother) had taken care of the murder because he (Ted) didn't want to be married anymore.
