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.

Elswick included fellow officers who came from several states, some avid sports enthusiasts and even Elswick family members who drove four hours for the event at Hagerstown's Four Points Sheraton. "The rest of the family got snowed in," said Linda Elswick Bolen, aunt of the trooper who is recuperating at a Georgia hospital after being shot in the head in October. She and her sister, Susan Elswick Fisher, and their husbands were spirited bidders during the auction, which attracted more than 70 people and raised more than $10,000.

By DON AINES Staff Writer, Martinsburg INWOOD, W.Va. - For John and Cynthia Smailes, just raking leaves brings memories of their daughter rushing back. Amanda Marie Smailes, 21, was killed one year ago today when her car was crushed by another car being chased by West Virginia State Police. "Last year she was obsessed with raking the leaves up so they wouldn't get into the yard of the lady next door," Cynthia Smailes said last week. "Amanda cared about people so much, right down to not wanting Frances to rake leaves," she said of her daughter's concern for their elderly neighbor.
