BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. -- A Berkeley Springs man charged with one count of murder and one count of concealment of a body in the death of his father was arraigned Monday in Morgan County Circuit Court.
The jury trial for Stephen J. Tamburo III, 39, of Shanghai Road in Berkeley Springs, is to begin Aug. 3 in Morgan County Circuit Court.
The date was set by 23rd Judicial Circuit Judge Gina M. Groh.
Groh said the trial will "piggyback" on one for Tamburo regarding 15 counts of prescription fraud between September and December 2008. He was indicted on those charges in April 2009.
Tamburo was represented by Francine H. Phillips of the public defender's office in Martinsburg, W.Va., who requested he be released on a $100,000 bond. Morgan County Prosecutor Debra MH McLaughlin said she did not want Tamburo released, especially since he had to be extradited from Florida.
