ELKINS, W.Va. — Charges are reduced for a Maryland woman accused of killing a man at an Elkins residence.
Vanessa Faye Logan, 32, of Oakland, Maryland, was charged with first-degree murder in the Nov. 18 shooting death of Spencer Christian Zoller. Zoller was found dead on the living room floor of his Gum Road residence in Elkins after Randolph County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to the scene.
Logan allegedly fled the scene prior to the arrival of law enforcement officers. She was later arrested by U.S. Marshals on Nov. 27 in Morgantown.
Randolph County Prosecuting Attorney Michael Parker made a motion to reduce the sentence from first-degree murder to second-degree murder prior to a preliminary hearing held Monday to establish probable cause for Logan’s arrest.
Logan’s case will be bound over to the Randolph County Circuit Court for presentation to a grand jury and possible indictment.
