Court appearance scheduled for accused Va. triple murderer Speight
The man charged with killing eight people at his rural central Virginia home will appear in court one day after being indicted by a grand jury.
The arraignment of 39-year-old Christopher Speight of Appomattox is set for Wednesday morning.
Speight was indicted Tuesday on three counts of capital murder and six other charges. He is being held without bond.
Speight was arrested Jan. 20, a day after the shooting deaths at the home he shared with his sister, her husband and their two children. Those family members were among the victims.
The shootings prompted an all-night manhunt in the woods surrounding Speight's home. He surrendered the next morning.
