SLIDESHOW: Man jailed for 'open dump' on property

BECKLEY (WVVA) - A Raleigh County man has been sent to jail for operating an 'open dump,' on his property.

At a hearing in October, 74-year old Charles Keller was ordered by a judge to have his property on Fitzpatrick Road in Beckley cleaned up before his hearing Thursday afternoon.

But on Thursday, the judge found Keller had made minimal effort to clean the property and ordered him to jail.

The judge went on to say that if Keller's family makes significant effort to clean the property, the court will release him from state custody.

Until then, Keller will serve a 90-day sentence at Southern Regional Jail.
