Reverend unknowingly harbors murder suspect


We talked to the man who unwittingly gave shelter to an accused quadruple-murder suspect who was arrested in the Queen City this week.

A local clergyman says that back in March he gave the man a place to stay in exchange for doing work on his property. Alexander Hill, 48, came to the Temple of Christ Church during a "code blue," and ended up staying there for about a month.

Reverend Reginald Kerr says Hill, who introduced himself under the alias "Trent," pretty much kept to himself.
