Mace said he used to pay Chapman, who lived across the street from him, to do odd jobs around his home. He hasn't spoken to Chapman's family since the arrest. He didn't know the man he said was with Chapman during the incident.
According to the criminal complaint, a bloodhound was able to track Chapman from Jones' house to Mace's house and back to Chapman's house. A man allegedly told deputies he was with Chapman and another man the night of the attacks, and that Chapman had asked to borrow a crowbar. A crowbar was found in Jones' home, and Mace said someone had tried to use a crowbar to break down his door.
The witness allegedly told deputies Chapman and the other man had been drinking and using marijuana when they started talking about breaking into homes in the area, according to the criminal complaint.
"I don't understand why he'd want to do something to someone who had never done anything unkind to you in your life. I want him to know he's changed my life forever," Mace said. "This is an incident I can forgive, but I can't forget. I'll never forget."
Chapman was arraigned in Kanawha County Magistrate Court by Magistrate Jack Pauley, who set a $75,000 cash-only bail.
Rutherford said more people may be arrested in the case.
"The sheriff's department has put hundreds of hours into this case," Rutherford said. "The deputies have worked long and hard on this one."
