Prewitt was charged after the bodies of Wendy Camp; her 6-year-old daughter, Cynthia Britto; and Camp's sister-in-law, Lisa Kregear, were found buried last April on land that he and his late mother owned at separate times in the early 1990s.
Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett will again offer a public safety proposal to help finance the operations of the police and ire departments.
In an interview with KWGS, the mayor says the proposal is still in its early stages, and he is not ready to give specifics. Last year, a similar proposal was derailed by the Tulsa City Council. Bartlett wants this new proposal to be presented to Tulsa voters.
The mayor says last year's proposal would have provided funding for over 40 firefighters and 70 new police officers. The plan would have provided for salaries and benefits.
