MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — One of the two men accused in a fatal March 2016 shooting is scheduled in court Monday morning.

Benjamin Bradley entered provisional pleas to burglary and conspiracy on Sept. 20 in Monongalia County Circuit Court.

Early on March 31, 2016, Bradley and Jeremiah Martin are accused of entering a home on Montrose Avenue before opening fire and killing Jesse James Loya. A second person was injured in the shooting.

Martin pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in June. He is serving a life sentence with mercy, making him eligible for parole in 15 years.

Bradley was initially indicted on charges of first-degree murder and robbery. Those charges will be dropped if Judge Russell Clawges accepts the plea.
