CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A Kanawha County man is behind bars on charges of murder and wanton endangerment for allegedly shooting and killing the man he found with his ex-girlfriend at a Cross Lanes home.

Members of the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department’s SWAT Team arrested Dustin Wayne Bodkins, 29, for the shooting death of Timothy Morris from St. Albans following a standoff on Orchard Avenue before 4 a.m. Thursday.

Bodkins was also accused of pointing a gun at the woman involved, identified as Lindsey Winans, and threatening to kill her. The two had recently separated.

According to the criminal complaint, Bodkins returned to the home he had shared, at one point, with Winans for medication. He allegedly started searching the home once inside and found Morris in a closet. There was a fight and Morris was shot during it.

Bodkins later barricaded himself in a bedroom with a gun.

Deputies with the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department were investigating.

    • bg

      how i can not believe what you people are saying you are so f*cked up in the head what if was you or someone in your family then how would you feel

  • Maybe yea just maybe

    Ever think the female didn't tell Timothy about her "EX" .... Smh you all are dumbass's

    • Saphire

      Dustin and Timothy worked together and Tim's wife knew Lindsey - dumb ass.

  • me

    You don't just kill people.he was young and had kids.. I hope Dude rots in jail..

    • Wtf

      Nearly everyone on here is ignorant. Regardless of the situation he didn't deserve for his life to be cut short. Although people are incorrect in saying Tim had kids, he does have loving family and friends. I hope all of you that has said his murder was justified and has cheated on someone or was with someone that was being unfaithful to their significant other, feel like you should have been caught it the act and have been murdered too.

    • saphire

      then he should of kept his weenie in his pants and screwed his own wife.

  • MOCO man

    Gary Karstens, I am assuming you do not own a vehicle. Vehicles cause way more deaths every year than guns do..........according to your logic, vehicles should be banned too.......

  • Megan

    If you kill someone you kill them it's a sin and they deserve life in prison with no parol!!

  • Gary Karstens

    A heat of the moment sees a man pick up a weapon of DEATH! No time to contemplate it. No time to think it over. Just pull the trigger and it is okay....right?

    These weapons of death are out of hand. Ban them and respect life. YEESH! I am tired of reading about shootings every day.

    • Come and Take Them

      ...well Gary, are you man enough to "come and take them"

    • Thecrow2123

      So stop reading. It wouldn't have mattered if there wasn't a gun handy. He would have used a knife or a bat or something else. It was his intention to kill the man and he did. The weapon used is inconsequential.

      I'm not willing to give up my firearms that I use for hunting and to protect my home and family because someone like you is tired of people using them to commit crimes.

      Stop drinking the kool aid and start using your head. It's not about the weapon of choice, it's about the choice to use it.

    • BS

      Yea take away guns and use machete's and pick axes instead!

    • Tracyo64

      Drunk drivers kill more people than firearm incidents, yet we don't hear you whine "YEESH" every time that happens. Why don't you call for the return of dry couties and horse-and-buggies ? YEESH!

    • Archie bunker

      Would it make you feel any better if they were all pushed out of a window?

  • Charlie

    This is crazy... Lindsey was cheating on him and he found out. Then she brings a man into the home that HE BOUGHT! Being a man I can say even if it is the women's fault we always would take it out on the man doing it! I can't believe she walks away safely.

  • Justin

    Don't want to end up dead don't mess around with someone women. It don't take a genius to figure that out!

    • scott

      he shouldve shot her too troublemaking whore

  • SB

    There is no justification for him shooting this man, but the woman most likely caused all of this and she's the only one walking away.

    • Molon Labe

      There was an altercation, maybe this man feared for his safety IN HIS OWN HOUSE.

      I do agree with you about her.

  • Rocko

    The plea is temporary insanity!!!

  • family

    Yes it was his home and it was his ex-fiancé after finding out she had cheated on him a couple of days earlier!

  • arp

    In Texas, this would not have been a crime. Maybe some other correct-thinking states, as well.

  • Bri

    Sad for everyone involved. The article says ex boyfriend, so I guess they weren't together. Probably not a good idea to be hanging around a woman who just got out of a relationship.

  • Voter

    I hope the #%&* was worth it.

  • Karl

    What a shame. The poor guy arrives at HIS home and discovers his EX girlfriend with a man. IN HIS HOME. Ends up being charged with murder. Why not involuntary manslaughter?

    • Blahh

      I hope the man and woman both die! She caused this, and he can't just going around killing people because of jealousy and control issues. If you can't control your temper to that degree then you need not be allowed out in society!

    • Megan

      Umm...bc he shot him!!! ....and killed him, shot him twice. It was none of his biz bc they were no longer together.

      • Unknown

        It's not okay to shoot anyone, however she caused this as everyone can see. The part that I find ridiculous, is her saying "a male friend just stayed over." Yes the suspect should've walked away and went on with his life,however their were many sins involved here not just him killing the guy. Pray for everyone, especially the children left behind that will no longer have a father. And no matter how anyone wants to look at it, having an affair is just as bad as murder.

        • saphire

          Know one mentioned the fact that Dustin was deeply in love with this girl and they were to marry next month. And this so called guy that was hiding in her house that she was sleeping with was married and his wife just had a baby 6 months ago. She had already been caught once with this same guy and said she would never do it again the day before. and he believed her!

          • Wtf

            That's severely incorrect. I know them both personally and unless you're talking about a puppy, not baby was had.

    • Maybe

      Are you certain it was "his" home, and not "hers" or perhaps "theirs"? You don't just kill people when you feel like it, doesn't work that way.

      • Dale

        They were together and it was their Home. They weren't seperated, it's just what she's saying to make herself look good. This is why you don't date people you work with. All Parties worked in the same place.

        • Maybe yea just maybe

          Where did they work? I'm sorry I'm really wondering this??

          • Come and Take Them

            Most likely at the dog track would be my guess.

    • Molon Labe

      Agreed.....she was the cause of all of this.
