CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A Kanawha County grand jury indicted a Chesapeake man on murder charges Friday on allegations he stabbed another man in the neck in May, killing him.
Chesapeake Police Chief Jack Ice said Joshua Brian Long, 27, confessed, after the incident, to stabbing William Arthur Proctor, with a large military-style knife known as a "Ka-Bar." An ambulance picked up Proctor at a Marmet Go-Mart, but he died soon after.
An indictment is not a finding of guilt. It only means that the grand jury believes there is enough evidence of a crime to merit a jury trial.
Other indictments and the judges assigned to the cases are:
