MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - An investigator testified Thursday that an 11-year-old boy told him that he saw the man charged in a July 30 fatal shooting at a Martinsburg motel standing over the victim holding a gun.
The boy and his brother, who is 6 years old, were living at the Relax Inn on Winchester Avenue with their mother, according to Capt. K.C. Bohrer of the Berkeley County Sheriff's Department. Bohrer testified Thursday in a preliminary hearing for E.C. Grimes, 23, who was charged with murder in the shooting death of Ronald L. Kidrick, 30, of Ray Street, Shepherdstown, W.Va.
Magistrate Joan Bragg ruled at the conclusion of the hearing that there was enough evidence to bound Grimes over to Berkeley County Circuit Court on the murder charge.
