New Developments In Springford Murders

Alabama Governor Bob Riley signed a warrant last Friday, and sent it by overnight delivery to Colorado's Governor Bill Owens. Riley asked that Owens send capital murder suspect Brent Springford, Jr., back to Alabama. WSFA 12 News has learned the Colorado governor received the warrant Saturday and signed it Monday.

"I don't know what this is about. I can't believe this is happening to me," says Springford denying his alleged role in the double murder of his parents on Thanksgiving night. Springford's statements were made in a phone call to WSFA 12 News on December 2.

Despite the cooperation between both states, Springford will be entitled to an extradition hearing in Colorado, a hearing that gives Springford the opportunity to challenge the signatures of both governors and a chance for the judge to make sure everything is in order.

We're told that since this is a capital murder case, the hearing should take place in a few days. Once Springford is brought back to Alabama, his case will then be presented to a Montgomery County grand jury. If there is an indictment, a trial date will be set and that could be anywhere from 6 months to a year from now.

Charlotte and Brent Springford, Sr., were beaten to death in their own home. Their bodies were found the next day by a remodeling crew, according to police.
