BRISTOW, Okla. (AP) - An Oklahoma man charged as an accessory after the fact of first-degree murder in the 1992 disappearance and deaths of two women and a girl is scheduled for a preliminary hearing.
Grover Prewitt Jr. is slated to appear in court Friday in Bristow. He has pleaded not guilty.
Prewitt was charged after the bodies of Wendy Camp; her 6-year-old daughter, Cynthia Britto; and Camp's sister-in-law, Lisa Kregear, were found buried last April on land that he and his late mother owned at separate times in the early 1990s.
According to an affidavit, Prewitt told investigators 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.
