PINEVILLE (WVVA) - The man accused of assaulting his grandparents in their Baileysville home appeared in court Monday -- as did the grandmother he is accused of attacking.

Medwin Willard, 33, faces several charges in the alleged Jan. 3 assault of Ord and Joyce Vance two weeks ago -- including kidnapping, malicious wounding and perpetrating a violent crime against the elderly.

On Monday, Willard's grandmother Joyce Vance offered testimony in court. The judge found probable cause for Willard to stand trial.

Willard was described as emotionless during the proceedings.

Monday's ruling excludes the kidnapping charge. Circuit Court will hear that charge later this year.

It was revealed in court Monday that the juvenile inside the home during the alleged attack was Willard's 11-year-old son, who has been adopted by the grandparents.

The child was unharmed in the incident.

It was also learned that Joyce's husband, Ord, was back in the hospital due to hemorrhaging. It was unknown if the hospitalization was the result of injuries received in the attack, or from the cancer he is currently battling.
