On Tuesday, police say 45-year-old Brain Hawkins turned himself in for the 1993 cold case murder of Frank McAlister after finding god.
Hawkins said the guilt has been eating away at him for years, and he just had to confess.
"He says it's been bothering him for the entire time, he mentioned every day of his life it weighed on him," said Captain Eric Wallace of Redding Police.
During his confession with police, Hawkins says 45-years-old Curtis Culver and 46-year-old Shanna Culver of Red Bluff aided him in luring 19-year-old Frank McAlister to Shingletown where they stabbed him to death, then stole his money and car.
Police say information Hawkins gave during his confession matched evidence in the case, which led to the arrests on Wednesday.
All three suspects are currently booked into the Shasta County Jail and are awaiting charges.
