(AP) - A capital murder trial in Montgomery has revealed a motive for why a Colorado man killed his prominent parents in Montgomery five years ago.
Robin Springford Crouch said her parents, Brent and Charlotte Springford, had generously supported her brother, Winston Brent Springford Jr., but the killing occurred after her parents told him that they were going to cut off his credit card.
The Springfords were killed on Thanksgiving night 2004 after returning home from visiting their daughter in Birmingham.
Their son pleaded guilty to capital murder last month and prosecutors agreed to a sentence of life in prison without parole rather than a death sentence. But state law requires that Springford still go through an abbreviated trial. It began Wednesday and continued Thursday.
