Nominate West Virginia Lock Up in the Best New and Best Law Blogs

The 2009 Weblog Awards
Whoever happens to stop by this blog may wonder why I started it. Whenever I read news stories online I always like to put a face to the story. So I got to thinking maybe other people would as well. I always keep up on WV news and most stories don't have the mugshots with them so I hunt them up online and post them with the story. It's not that hard and I don't know why the state news sites don't do it

Triple murder charges

Triple murder charges against a Virginia man will head to a Hardy County grand jury for consideration.

Nakia Keller, 34, of Rockingham County, Virginia appeared before Hardy County Magistrate Daniel Poling for a preliminary hearing Thursday afternoon.

Keller and his wife Lorrie Taylor, 34, are in custody after allegedly shooting and killing Taylor's ex-husband Chip, his wife Alaina Taylor, and Alaina's five-year old daughter Kaylee.

Testimony during Thursday's hearing said each victim was shot at least once and then their house in the Hardy County community of Mathias set on fire.

Investigators say Chip and Lorrie Taylor were in a custody battle over their three children.

Magistrate Poling ruled there was enough evidence against Keller to forward the charges. He was returned to the Potomac Highlands Regional Jail without bond.

Lorrie Taylor's preliminary hearing has been rescheduled for Nov. 12 at 2 p.m. She also remains in jail.
