— Wisconsin prosecutors say a Kentucky man accused of killing a young couple in 1980 told detectives he had consensual sex with the woman and that he watched other men beat the two to death.

Edward Edwards of Louisville, Ky., is charged with killing 19-year-olds Tim Hack and Kelly Drew after the couple left a wedding reception. Prosecutors say DNA from semen found on Drew's pants matched Edward's.


Jefferson County, Wis., prosecutors filed an amended criminal complaint Wednesday that states Edwards told investigators in July that he had consensual sex with Drew in a field outside the reception hall. He says he saw Hack fighting two men, who stomped Hack to death.


Prosecutors say Edwards said he saw three men stomp Drew to death but did nothing to help because he didn't want to get involved.
