Would-be robber shot and killed

Charleston Daily Mail
CHARLESTON, W.Va.-- Deputies say an alleged would-be robber was shot and killed after a man found him inside his girlfriend's Wayne County home after a night of bowling.

Brittany Nikole Stroud and her boyfriend, Casey Bartram, had just returned to her Lynn Creek Road home near Lavalette late Sunday night after an evening out with her 2-year-old son when they found two masked men inside the house, according to a news statement issued by Detective Chet Maynard of the Wayne Sheriff's Department.

Stroud told emergency dispatchers that the two men inside the house wore dark colored clothing and ski masks and surprised the couple. When deputies arrived, they found the body of one masked man dead on the kitchen floor with a gunshot wound to the head. He was identified Monday as Jason Mathew Hall, 28.

While Stroud told dispatchers that she thought she'd shot one of the men, deputies at the scene learned that Bartram, Stroud's boyfriend, had actually been the shooter, the release said. Bartram identified the second man, who fled from the home after Stroud and Bartram arrived, as Gary Shane Maynard, 23, of Huntington.

Maynard was arrested early Monday morning at his 5th Street Road home. He was charged with nighttime burglary and armed robbery. Maynard is being held at Western Regional Jail on $75,000 bond.

Deputies could not say where the gun involved in the shooting came from. Neither Stroud, her young son, nor Bartram was injured in the incident. No charges were expected to be filed against the couple. Detective Maynard could not say how Bartram knew the other alleged robber.

Deputies still are investigating.

I wonder why the news is saying she was the one that shot?

Because she said she did. From what I have read on comments on WSAZ Casey is a convicted felon and was not to be in possesion of a firearm. So she was covering up for him. Look at her facebook she even stated on there that she was the shooter. Something is not right in all this and hopefully the truth will come out. I do not know any of the people involved.
