TULSA, Oklahoma — A Bristow man accused of helping his family members hide the bodies of two slain women and a young girl more than 20 years ago has waived his right to a preliminary hearing.

Grover Prewitt, 62, has pleaded not guilty to being an accessory to first-degree murder. He appeared Friday before Creek County Special Judge Richard Woolery, who scheduled his arraignment in district court for Nov. 12, the Tulsa World reported Saturday (http://bit.ly/1ykjfYA ).

Last year, investigators found the remains of 23-year-old Wendy Camp, her 6-year-old daughter, Cynthia Britto, and Camp's sister-in-law, 22-year-old Lisa Kregear, buried in a field near Jennings that Prewitt and his mother, Ida Prewitt, owned when the victims disappeared in 1992.

The land was owned by Prewitt and his mother, Ida Prewitt, at the time the victims disappeared. Grover Prewitt is accused of helping his now-deceased mother and other family members avoid prosecution for the slayings by concealing the bodies and other evidence.

During a July preliminary hearing, Prewitt testified against his sister Beverly Noe, 67, who faces three counts of first-degree murder in the deaths. He said Noe told him she had used a .357-caliber revolver and buried it with their bodies.

The victims went missing May 29, 1992, after visiting Camp's son, Jonathan, who was with Camp's ex-husband, Chad Noe, in Shamrock in Creek County. Beverly Noe is Chad Noe's mother.

Camp and Kregear were shot to death, and the child was killed in some unspecified way, the autopsy determined.
