WAYNE COUNTY, W.Va.(WSAZ)– A Prichard man was shot and killed early Wednesday morning along Route 37 in the Echo area in what appears to be a self-defense case, Wayne County Sheriff Greg Farley said.
Charles David Workman died after being shot with a shotgun. The shooting happened at the home of James Belcher about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Belcher surrendered to authorities when the sheriff’s department arrived. No charges immediately were filed against Belcher, but the case will be considered by a grand jury.
Workman’s body was taken to the state medical examiner’s office.
