LEWISBURG (WVVA) - A Greenbrier County man charged with felony murder as a result of arson was back in court Monday.

Harvey Lee Davis, 35, of Orient Hill appeared before Magistrate Beard in Greenbrier County for a preliminary hearing. Probable cause was found to send the case to the grand jury.

Williams died in the blaze.
