RICTHIE COUNTY, W.Va. — The self-proclaimed whistleblower, who revealed several allegations about the West Virginia State Police, is now facing a three-count indictment.
Joseph Comer has been indicted by a Ritchie County Grand Jury on charges of domestic battery, strangulation and violating a protective order. The incidents of domestic battery and strangulation both allegedly happened in December 2022.
In September, Comer had his bond revoked after prosecutors said he violated his bond by communicating with his ex-wife, Vikki Marra, who accused him of domestic violence.
Comer is suspected of being the whistleblower who came forward about the alleged misconduct within the agency. West Virginia State Police filed a letter to terminate Comer’s employment last month.
Comer is expected to be arraigned in Ritchie County Circuit Court Tuesday.
