The man accused of killing a University of South Carolina associate professor early Sunday hid inside her home for several hours as she lay dead, even as police responded to a call about a possible disturbance there, prosecutors said Thursday.
It was one of several allegations revealed in testimony by law officers during a bond hearing for Hank Hawes, 37, charged with murder in the brutal stabbing of Jennifer Wilson, 36.
Hawes, who did not appear at Thursdays hearing before Circuit Judge Casey Manning, remains at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center, after waiving his right to request bond.
Since being arrested and charged with murder Sunday, Hawes has refused to speak to police.
However, police say that before his Sunday arrest, he made a telephone confession to an unidentified person, according to testimony by Columbia Police Sgt. William Pegram at Thursdays hearing.
