More details emerge in Appomattox shooting
More sad details are beginning to emerge in the case of a Virginia man who shot eight people, including his sister and brother-in-law Tuesday night, in what authorities said was the worst mass killing in the state since the Virginia Tech slayings in 2007.
Christopher Speight surrendered to police Wednesday, after a nearly 20-hour manhunt. He is charged with one count of murder. He made a brief appearance Friday morning in Appomattox County Circuit Court and declined a court-appointed attorney.
Warrants released today in the case detail the grisly crime scene. According to the Associated Press, a deputy who arrived at the home found two bodies on the porch and another next to a car in a driveway. A fourth victim was found alive on a nearby road with a gunshot wound to the torso. He later died at a hospital.
