A mechanic and another man were charged Sunday in the shooting death of a towing company owner whose body was found on Christmas Eve in a car trunk, police said.

James Caldwell, 49, of Mastic Beach, pleaded not guilty Sunday to second-degree murder charges in the shooting death of Kevin Koch, the owner of KC Towing.

'They beat a confession out of me, 14 hours,' Caldwell told Newsday as he was led from a police precinct Sunday.

Steven Browne, 29, of Mastic Beach, pleaded not guilty to hindering prosecution.

Um, yes Kevin's girlfriend was behind it which we all know she hired James and Steven, and Steven and James will both rot in hell. And YES STEVEN did do it. We all know it and then Steven lived with the dead body for 4 days while he had his 4 year old child at the premises. Sick evil people and may God have vengeance on them all. And Steven got out after a year for snitching on everyone.

If Caldwell was innocent why did he confess? Why did he take the sentence? Common sense tells you he is a piece of trash pill addict who got way less than he deserves. Cruel and inhumane torture is not allowed in the state but I wish it were just for him and Steven.
