Defense attorney Erik Oblasser pointed out that the cellmate would also receive a recommendation for a sentence review from District Attorney Michael Blonigen, which Blonigen confirmed.
According to testimony from Masterson, Pam Nemetz, the woman who tricked Masterson into opening the door, had previously spread false accusations that Masterson had molested Nemetz's granddaughter.
Simmons initially tried to invoke his Fifth Amendment right against self incrimination but was overruled by Forgey, who said there was no risk of further self incrimination in this case.
At that time, Simmons said he would refuse to testify in the case. Forgey said Simmons could be held in contempt of court, to which Simmons said he would take an additional six months to the end of his 25 year sentence.
Another woman whose house Johnson stayed at in Gillette after allegedly committing the crime said she heard him talking on the phone about not liking "chi mos," or child molesters.
That cellmate, who was called as a witness early Tuesday in the second day of Johnson's trial in Natrona County District Court, said Johnson had told him details of the time leading up to the crime, along with how it was carried out.
Defense Air Max Thea Colors attorney Jeremy Kisling asked the woman if she liked child molesters before Blonigen objected, saying the question was irrelevant, which Judge Daniel Forgey agreed with.

jailed in Casper on charges of attempted first degree murder, Zacharia Johnson allegedly asked his cellmate, who Johnson believed was in a gang, to have the gang "finish the job" and kill Robert Masterson, 60, the cellmate testified in court Tuesday.
The prosecution argues that Johnson planned the attack because he believed Masterson was a child molester, though Blonigen said there is no evidence at all to support that claim.
