Toone indicted in June murder

SoVaNow.com / August 21, 2013
A Mecklenburg County grand jury this week indicted Michael Eugene Toone of Boydton for the murder of William Matthews.

Toone was charged with both second degree murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony after he allegedly shot and killed the 39-year-old Matthews of Boydton in June of this year.

Toone was one of 15 individuals who were indicted by the grand jury on Monday. An indictment is a finding that sufficient evidence exists to bring a case to trial. It is not a determination of guilt.

Trevor L. Williams of La Crosse and Joseph Allen Overby of Buffalo Junction each were indicted in separate rape incidents.

Also, Devin Clinton Bowers of South Hill, Morgan Elizabeth Gurtiz of Athens, Ga., and Antion Lamont Winstead of Buffalo Junction were each separately charged with possession of a controlled substance. Winstead and Gurtiz were charged with possession of cocaine, and Bowers was charged with possession of hydrocodone.

Steven Teacher Alexander of Boydton was indicted on one count of operating a motor vehicle in violation of a restricted license and operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Robert Francher Degrandcourt, Jr. of Clarksville was charged with operating a motor vehicle on a public highway after having been adjudged a habitual offender.

Tristan Gautier Bell of Brodnax was charged with eluding and disregard of a police warning after having received a visible or audible signal from a law enforcement officer.

Michael Eugene Allen of Brodnax was charged with larceny for attempting to steal merchandise valued at less than $200 from a Virginia ABC store, after having been convicted of two or more similar offenses. He was also indicted for possession of marijuana while a prisoner in a state, local or community correctional facility.

Abdur Rahman Hamed Muhammad, aka Derrick Douglas Brown, of Brodnax was charged with breaking and entering with intent to commit larceny at the Brodnax Slip-In convenience store.

Both Jessika D. Rogers of South Hill and Tenisha Dorcelle Brodnax of South Hill were indicted for separate incidents of theft of goods valued at $200 or more from Walmart.
