SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - One of the three suspects in a 25-year-old cold case murder in Shingletown pleaded not guilty in Shasta County Superior Court on Friday.

Forty-six-year-old Shanna Culver pleaded not guilty to murdering 19-year-old Frank McAlister.

McAlister’s body was found in 1994 near Grace and Nora Lakes but was reported missing in May 1993.

Another suspect, Brian Hawkins confessed to the crime in January, and Shanna’s brother Curtis allegedly stabbed McAlister to death.

Culver will appear in court again on June 25.
