martinsburg@herald-mail.com David Eugene Munday was sentenced Monday to serve life in prison for shooting a West Virginia State Police trooper in the head more than a year ago, and will serve additional time in prison for related charges. Before Circuit Court Judge David Sanders announced the sentence, Trooper R.J. "Bobby" Elswick, the trooper who was wounded, spoke, as did Elswick's wife, father and a friend, Sgt. Eric Burnett. Terri Elswick responded to a comment made in court by Robert Barrat, one of Munday's defense attorneys, that the case had been blown out of proportion because a state trooper was involved.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com INWOOD - On the other side of Cynthia Smailes-Rybak's back yard, cars, pickup trucks and tractor-trailers rumble by, visible and audible as they make their way up and down Interstate 81. It's the road Smailes-Rybak's daughter, Amanda Smailes, could have taken Nov. 24, 1996. But Smailes didn't like the high speed required on the interstate, and chose instead after ending her shift at Wal-Mart to drive home on U.S. 11, a two-lane road that parallels the interstate.
