Murder suspect returned to W.Va. to face charges

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A man wanted for a murder in downtown Charleston earlier this month is back in West Virginia to face the charges.

Meeko Harris, 23, of Beckley was extradited Friday from Florida to West Virginia. He was arraigned Friday evening in Kanawha County on a charge of first degree murder for the June 4th shooting death of James Daugherty.

Daugherty suffered multiple gunshot wounds at a parking lot on Hale Street in downtown Charleston during the early morning hours of June 4th. He died hours later at CAMC General hospital.

The criminal complaint in the case notes surveillance cameras captured the incident and Harris posted a picture of himself to social media around the same time wearing the same shirt and necklace worn during the crime.

Harris was arrested June 10th in Osceola County, Florida. He’s lodged in the South Central Regional Jail without bond.
