BRISTOW, Oklahoma — A hearing was rescheduled Wednesday for an Oklahoma man facing a charge related to the 1992 deaths of two women and a girl whose bodies were found in a hole dug for a septic tank.
Grover Prewitt Jr. was due in Creek County District Court and has pleaded not guilty to being an accessory after the fact of first-degree murder. His next hearing is now set for Sept. 9 in Bristow.
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 in 2013 on land Prewitt and his late mother had previously owned.
In January, Prewitt's 67-year-old sister, Beverly Noe, was sentenced to 15 years in prison after pleading no contest to being an accessory to first-degree murder in the deaths as part of a plea deal.
At the time of Noe's sentencing, prosecutors said the age of the case and issues with witness availability factored into the decision to offer the plea deal, which he called the best resolution for the victims' families.
Camp had been married to Noe's son and prosecutors have said Noe feared Camp planned to take away the former couple's son. Camp, her daughter and sister-in-law had traveled from Oklahoma City on May 29, 1992, to visit the boy, who was with his father.
After the three disappeared, Beverly Noe acknowledged being the last person to see them alive. She told investigators she dropped them off at a Wal-Mart in Chandler after getting into a fight with Camp.
The bodies were found in 2013 after Grover Prewitt Jr. directed authorities to a property he and his mother owned at the time.
Court documents show Prewitt told investigators he dug the hole for a septic tank, but after the two women and the girl disappeared his mother asked him to fill in the hole and sprinkle the ground with pepper to cover up any odor.
Prewitt's mother died in 2011.
