Accused murderer admits firing shots in interview with authorities

Posted: Updated:

Curtis Glaze walked out of the courtroom Tuesday with nothing to say. His face lacked expression. 

Glaze is out on bond while he is tried for murder.  He and his cousin Joshua Glaze are accused of killing Brian Drake after pursuing drake and two of his friends down Highway 326 last year. 

"It was like reliving it and it was horrible," Briana Herring said in an interview with 12News.

Briana Herring was one of the people in Drake's truck the night he was killed. She could hardly contain herself while testifying at Tuesday's trial.

"I thought I was going to die to be honest. I thought that was going to be the last night of my life," she said referring to the night of the shooting.

Herring told prosecutors she was with Drake and her then boyfriend leaving Glaze road when they were stopped by two men in a white Dodge Durango. 

Herring said Drake drove 80 miles per hour on Highway 326 trying to get away, she heard a loud pop, then says Drake slumped over. 

Sergeant Mark Vincent testified he stopped a vehicle matching Herring's description later the same night.

Vincent told prosecutors he identified Glaze as the man who fled from the passenger seat due to his criminal record but Glaze was quickly captured. 

In an interview with the Hardin County Sheriff's Office Glaze said he shot at Drake's truck with a deer rifle because his cousin Joshua told him 'kill or be killed'.

Herring to this day does not know why the Glaze cousins followed Drake's truck. 

"I think they thought we were someone else. I'm not sure," Herring said. 

The trial will continue Wednesday morning with more testimony.
