Wyoming County Murder Trial Ends With a Plea

Posted:

PINEVILLE (WVVA) -- A Wyoming County murder trial ended with a plea on Thursday.

Prosecutor Michael Cochrane tells WVVA Harold Daughtery, 69, pled guilty to manslaughter and was immediately sentenced to four years in prison.

He said based on the evidence and where they were in the trial, the plea was the best for all parties involved.

Daughtery was on trial for 1st degree murder in the death of Timothy Huff in May of 2010.

Prosecutors said Daughtery waited for Huff to come by his home on a private road and then fired shots at him -- adding the two have a history of ill-feelings.
