Suspects in kidnapping, murder of Kamille “Cupcake” McKinney in court Thursday
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - The two suspects in the murder and kidnapping of 3-year-old Kamille “Cupcake” McKinney were in court Thursday morning.
Patrick Stallworth and Derick Irisha Brown face capital murder and kidnapping charges.
Both defendants waived their rights to a speedy trial Thursday.
Stallworth’s trial is tentatively set for sometime in October in Birmingham.
Brown is expected to go on trial shortly after, possibly in November. The defense is asking to move her trial out of Birmingham. Brown’s attorneys have also asked the court to have the prosecution preserve all evidence in case they have their own testing done.
A Jefferson County grand jury in December indicted Stallworth and Brown on capital murder of a child under the age of 14 and capital murder of a child during a kidnapping. Those are state charges.
McKinney’s body was found in a dumpster at a local landfill in October of 2019.
