CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Hagerstown man will stand trial in the 1985 disappearance of Melvin Snyder, Franklin County Common Pleas Court Judge Douglas W. Herman ruled Wednesday. Herman found that Ronald Harshman should be bound over for court on a criminal homicide charge. Harshman will remain in Franklin County Prison without bail, Herman ruled. "The nature of Mr. Snyder's disappearance provides evidence of his death by criminal agency," Herman said. A preliminary hearing for Harshman was held last week, but Herman delayed his decision until Wednesday to give defense attorney David S. Keller time to submit written arguments for dismissing the charge.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The sister of a man who died following a shooting near Ranson Tuesday said she never would have imagined her brother being involved in such a dangerous situation. Judy Brown described her brother, Earl Payton, as a friendly, nonviolent person. If Payton realized he was in a situation that was life threatening, he would have walked away, Brown said. "I don't even remember him being in a fight. So I don't know what went on there," Brown said. Payton was found Tuesday lying in the living room of a friend's house at 320 Orchard Drive near Ranson with a gunshot wound to the chest, according to state police.
