June 7, 2019

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — The father of a slain West Virginia woman pleaded not guilty to shooting at people connected to the man convicted of killing his daughter.

The Herald-Dispatch reports 64-year-old Gregory Adkins is the father of 26-year-old Kayla Adkins. Last August, 27-year-old Corey Chapman was found guilty of strangling Kayla Adkins during an argument about their relationship status.

Investigators say that more than a year after his daughter’s killing, Gregory Adkins shot into the home of Chapman’s wife and at a vehicle near the office of Chapman’s defense attorney.

Gregory Adkins is charged with seven counts of wanton endangerment. The Herald-Dispatch reports he’s on house arrest with supervision on bail.
