When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

Hacking's plea came after the victim's brother, Paul Soares wrote a letter to Hacking in jail. The letter urged him to "be a man" and begged him to "save your family the grief and cost" and plead guilty to murder.

"Just plead guilty for once. Just tell the truth. Take responsibility for your actions," Soares wrote, according to the Deseret Morning News.

"Your father said you were determined to do what is right -- even if it costs you your life. ... Just tell the judge the truth. Admit it. Don't ask for some lenient plea bargain. Be a man," the letter continued.

Hacking's attorney indicated he would challenge Hacking's alleged confession to his brothers that he shot his wife in the head while she slept and disposed of her remains, the weapon and a mattress in trash bins.
