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.
