MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - Serial killer Samuel Mcdowell, also known as Samuel Little, made his first court appearance for a murder charge at the Ector County Courthouse November 26.
McDowell is accused of killing 38-year-old mother Denise Brothers back in 1994.
Authorities say McDowell confessed to the crime along with dozens of other homicides across the country after he was extradited to Wise County by the Texas Rangers earlier this year.
During his court appearance, McDowell remained calm and quiet as his attorney Jason Leach spoke on his behalf, and while District Attorney Bobby Bland requested more time for evidence discovery.
“I’m not gonna get into the what evidence I’m expecting, but there is some additional information that I know has been obtained, in this case, by the Texas Rangers, that I need to get so that we can use it in the prosecution, and so the defense can have access to it,” said Bland.
Another status hearing for evidence discovery was set for two weeks.
Once evidence discovery is complete, another hearing will determine if McDowell’s case will go to trial.
Meanwhile, Samuel McDowell will remain behind bars at the Ector County Detention Center.
