A 19-Year-Old Man Is Sentenced to 45 Years in Prison For Murder-For-Hire
Daniel Lawrence Alvey was sentenced to 45 years for his part in a murder-for-hire plot that saw 18-year-old Olivia Huggler kill and two of her brothers wounded during an incident that took place December 2021. Alvey pled guilty to murdering Olivia Huggler as well as wounding two of them during his hearing in March.
Samuel Huggler hired him, according to court papers submitted, but Samuel Huggler later left the country and fled before any legal proceedings could commence.
Early Life and Education
Daniel Alvey was recently sentenced to 45 years in prison in relation to a 2021 murder-for-hire shooting which resulted in one person’s death and two injuries. Alvey pleaded guilty in April as part of a plea agreement agreement reached between himself and authorities regarding this incident.
Alvey earned two letters in both sports at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky where she held their career assist record until 2004.
Alvey led her Houston teams to be ranked as high as 38th in the AVCA RPI during both of her seasons with them, earning top-three finishes in Conference USA each season and mentoring several student-athletes to earn postseason accolades from AVCA including senior All-American Jordanne Scott. According to Pilley, Alvey saw business not as just about making money but as connecting it to faith and community.
Alvey graduated from Lemont High School in 2007 and quickly established himself in mixed martial arts competition, competing in Bellator, MFC and as a finalist of The Ultimate Fighter 16 season.
He’s made a lucrative living through fighting card bonuses and the sale of his California home a year ago; which netted him $250,000 profit after one year on the UFC circuit. Though uncertain as to the length of time left in UFC competition, he wants to go out on top if possible.
His workout partner was an unruly 6-foot-4 black belt who weighed more than 250 pounds; yet, the student managed to land some striking and kicking techniques against him.
Achievement and Honors
He is widely recognized for improving the accuracy of the Atlantic hurricane database. A natural leader and passionate advocate of science education outreach, she has successfully led over 1,000 work group meetings while remaining dedicated to engaging students in hurricane research.
His passions included serving at First United Methodist Church of Marble Falls where he took part in their youth group and cooking meals for Body and Soul Cafe each Wednesday night, as well as the Marble Falls Mustangs Athletic Booster Club.
He is survived by his wife, Barbara; daughters Morgan and Natalie; granddaughters; sister Patty Alvey of Colonial Beach, MD and brother-in-law James Tippett from Hollywood, MD along with many nieces and nephews. Unfortunately his mother passed away.
Alvey was an adoring father and grandfather. Morgan and Natalie, his granddaughters, were his pride and joy; he loved showing pictures to anyone he encountered, attending their sporting events frequently as well as festivals that featured bluegrass music. Over the years he befriended numerous business owners who assisted with marketing ideas or strategies he implemented himself.
He is survived by his wife, Lee, and son Nick. Additionally, members of St. Frederick’s Church in Marble Falls fondly recall his contributions as financial and spiritual support of children through “adopting” them financially and spiritually.
At a hearing in Evansville on Friday, Alvey was given a 45-year prison term for his participation in a murder-for-hire plot. All charges against Samuel Huggler were dropped as soon as he declined to testify against Alvey.
Alvey made waves during his Muay Thai career before turning his attention towards coaching as he sought to relax after all that hard work. Additionally, he launched a business providing martial arts lessons for kids which has had great results.
He made his UFC debut against Tom Watson at UFC Fight Night 47. Ultimately, he lost via unanimous decision.
Alvey may give off an impression that he’s playing around, but he takes his fighting very seriously and even willing to drop down a weight class for more opportunities to fight. Alvey trains at Dan Henderson’s Team Quest in Temecula, California, and has won three out of his last four fights; which is quite an accomplishment given that middleweight division is so competitive.
