Man accused in Oklahoma Cold Case due in court
BRISTOW, Okla. (AP) = An Oklahoma man accused of being an accessory to the 1992 disappearance and deaths of two women and a girl is due in court.
Grover Prewitt Jr.'s hearing is slated to get underway Friday.
Prewitt is charged with being an accessory after the fact to first-degree murder in the deaths of Wendy Camp, her 6-year-old daughter, Cynthia Britto, and Camp's sister-in-law, Lisa Kregear.
Prewitt told investigators that he dug a hole for a septic tank and that after the women and girl disappeared, his mother asked him to fill it in and sprinkle the ground with pepper to cover up any odor. Prewitt told police he thought the request was odd but did as his mother asked.
Prewitt has pleaded not guilty and remains jailed in lieu of $500,000 bond.
