BECKLEY, W.Va (WSAZ)- A Rainelle man is awaiting trial after being arrested and charged with a hunting-related shooting death of a man from Greenbrier County.

West Virginia Division of Natural Resources says Jerry Lee Scarles has been charged in Greenbrier County Magistrate Court with negligent killing of another person while hunting, a misdemeanor.

This after 50-year-old Clarence Stroud was found shot to death in the woods back in October 2009.

The incident happened near Springdale, in Fayette County.

Scarles was released on a $10,000 recognizance bond.

This is so sad that someone can kill someone else (a wonderful man at that) and then wait a year before coming forword. Its sad and sick, a hunting accident what a joke.

No doubt he will have to live with this for the rest of his life, but what a waste on tax payers money as well as the pain that others suffered as they were being blamed for this crime! And a misdemeanor? How do you kill someone, lie about it, cost tax payers money, cause innocent families to suffer and your bond is $10,000.00 that he stood good for?? Sure goes to show that it is ALL in who you are and who you know!! Others that committed lesser crimes would love to have this type of service!!

This is just an unbelievable mess. A man lost his life. He is absent from his families table for every holiday and another man has to live with this. There will be no justice that can fix this but to say we own our actions and at least the truth is owed to the people who has suffered and will continue to do so. I agree how did u know you were guility and you let all these other people suffer being accused. As I said what a mess
Prayer is Gods answer. What is mans answer?

With all due respect it has been a year. There are a lot of unanswered questions. Many people were accused and he allowed that to go on we all feared for our loved one to go into the woods because we didnt know who shot this man in an open field in plain view. I do understand how terrible this is to have one family member dead and another responsible and my heart breaks for them all but we all have to admit that none of this adds up. Where else could you have an entire year to own your actions and no doubt living with it is a terrible cross to bare but thats not the way things like this need to be handled.
As far as people running off at the mouth I think everyone has been very kind and respectful. Do you know of anyother case handled in this way?

I don't care if it was the pope who did it! It is wrong that a man went free for a year without turning himself in. If it truly was an ACCIDENT then why didn't he call 911 and attempt to help the man he shot to death? And again He spent a year with his family while another man was dead. You honestly think they were good friends? I don't know about you but if I had shot my friend in a hunting accident I would have called 911 and told them exactly what happened HOW COULD YOU NOT ESPECIALLY SINCE THEY WERE "FAMILY"
Really sad

What is sad is this.... this man should be PRESUMED innocent until proven guilty! Who among you KNOW he is guilty? Perhaps he was able to "live with it" because he did NOT do it. Judge not or you too shall be judged....

Not one of you on here know the facts. He didn't turn himself in after one year. He was arrested because, if any of you know the law, there is a 365 day statute of limitations on misdemeanor chages, which means the police have 365 days from the date of the incident to file criminal charges. They have no proof whatsoever that he did it, they just wanted to file charges against someone within the time frame. He didn't turn himself in and as for living with himself all this time, he can do that because he and his entire family knows he is innocent. And to you "Sad in Lewisburg"....do you know that he did call 911 and attempted CPR? Yes, he did! So please for the sake of this great family....stop all the nonsense. You are only speculating and assuming things that you have no real information about. I love this family and they do not need any more problems from idiots running their mouths about things they no nothing of. Thank you!

Didn't he confess?? And why was he NOT charged as a felon?

No. He did not confess. And the charge was a misdemeanor. They cannot charge him with a felony because there is NO EVIDENCE against him.
