Jury trial set in murder case
A September jury trial has been set in the case involving a Front Royal man accused in the shooting death of his stepfather in March 2017.
David Glynn Hoyle Jr., 34, pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges of first-degree murder and using a firearm in the commission of a felony. Hoyle is accused of shooting 58-year-old Warren Howard Ramsey on the night of March 27 in their Grand Avenue home in Front Royal.
The five-day jury trial is set to begin Sept. 10 in Warren County Circuit Court. The maximum punishment for first-degree murder is life imprisonment, and using a firearm in the commission of a felony carries a mandatory minimum sentence of three years imprisonment upon conviction.
