      Detective testifies during preliminary hearing for Flint double-murder suspects

      Another pretrial hearing has been set for March 29th.

      During a preliminary hearing Monday for William Evans and Steven Webster, Flint Police Detective Todd Pillsbury testified that shell casings from two different guns were found at the murder scene.

      Det. Pillsbury indicated that seven casings were found from what appeared to be a semi-automatic firearm, and another casing from a shotgun.

      The bodies of Oscar Knuckles, Jr. and Amyre Aikins were found next to Aikins' burning 2003 Oldsmobile Alero on January 18th near N. Ballenger Highway and Raskob Street.

      Evans and Webster are both charged with carjacking, armed robbery and two counts of murder. Webster is also charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.

      "We see the guys and know they ain't on the street no more. We glad they got caught. They're off the street. We didn't have to wait 2-3 years. I'm glad they just got caught," said Knuckles Jr.'s sister Janise Owens, fighting back tears after the hearing on Monday.

      Another preliminary hearing has been scheduled for March 29th.
