McDowell Co. man charged in Buchanan Co. murder

David Gilbert David Gilbert

A West Virginia man faces murder and robbery charges stemming from the death of a 78-year-old Virginia resident.
    Buchanan County Sheriff Ray Foster says authorities in McDowell County, W.Va., arrested 24-year-old David Hairm Gilbert this week on a fugitive from justice warrant.
    The War, W.Va., resident is accused of killing Leroy Shortridge of Grundy. Shortridge's body was found in a creek near his home in November 2011.
    A Buchanan County Circuit Court grand jury indicted Gilbert earlier this month on first-degree murder, attempted robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery charges.
    Gilbert waived extradition.
 He's being held at the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail in Haysi.
