Brian Hawkins and Curtis Culver were back in court today after Hawkins confessed to a 1993 cold case murder. Action news now was not allowed to bring a camera into the courtroom today so the footage above is from an earlier proceeding. Even though Brian Hawkins wanted to enter a guilty plea two weeks ago, his lawyer entered a not guilty plea on his behalf outside of court.

Both Hawkins and Culver along with Shana Culver are all charged with the murder of 19-year-old Frank McAlister in Shingletown in 1993. Shana Culver was 17 at the time and faces these charges as a minor. We cannot at this time check on the progress of her trial. Both parties will face their trials starting on April 24th unless they are postponed.
