Suspect's Mother Takes the Stand in Murder Trial

Posted: Updated:

ASOTIN, Wash.- Prosecutors put accused double murderer Kevin Hilton's mother on the stand Tuesday in his re-trial.

Hilton's mother says she didn't know about Hilton's rent troubles at the time of the killings.  

Hilton is accused of killing his Richland landlords in 2002 over $3,475 in owed rent.  

He was convicted of the crimes a year later but an appeals court overturned the conviction last year.
