DuPras pleads not guilty; judge denies bail in double murder case


The man accused to killing his estranged wife and her mother pleaded not guilty in court Thursday.

Alan Dupras is accused to shooting Jennifer DuPras, his estranged wife and former Kingsburg principal, as well as her mother Cynthia Houk.

DuPras daughter was in court Thursday to see the judge deny him bail. The judge said he is a potential threat to the community and other people.

DuPras had an injury to his eye that his attorney said he received in the process of being put into jail.

The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office released a statement about the injury:

“On Tuesday, during the booking process, inmate Alan DuPras became uncooperative with correctional officers. He attempted to walk away from them after he refused to follow their instructions,” a Sheriff spokesman said. “Officers stopped him from leaving by placing him against a wall. During this action, DuPras hit his left eyebrow area on the wall causing a small cut. He was medically treated; no stitches were necessary.”

DuPras is due back in court Oct. 18.
