  • BRISTOW, Okla. (AP) — An Oklahoma man has pleaded not guilty to helping his late mother and others avoid prosecution for the disappearance and deaths of three people in 1992.
     
    An attorney representing Grover Prewitt Jr. entered the innocent plea Friday on his client's behalf. Prewitt is charged with being an accessory after the fact of first-degree murder.
     
    He's next due in court June 28.
     
    Prosecutors say Prewitt sabotaged a pair of undercover surveillance attempts as investigators looked into the cold case.
     
    No one has been charged in the deaths of Wendy Camp, her daughter and a sister-in-law, but prosecutors allege Prewitt's mother and other family members were involved.
     
    The bodies were found buried last month on land owned by Grover Prewitt and his mother, Ida Prewitt, at separate times in the early 1990s.
