for them to learn. i sure hope someone does something about people like this who habitually keep doing crimes. I feel sorry for Jeff McElyea and his family, but if stiffer penalties were imposed on people maybe they would learn a lesson. He was convicted in 2 counties of home burglary in 04 and was sentenced to 6 years each. He served about a year is all.
Mark Combs does things like this and then he turns on people and acts like he is the victim. I am sure, he was just as much a part of this as the other boy. But he always wants people to think that everyone takes advantage of him....BS!!!!
Combs needs to serve time for this one!!!!! He still owes money for crimes he commited over a year ago. he has only paid what he had to pay in bail. He owes the county 1500.00. Most people aren't given that long to pay.
what a waste

I was one of Jeff "MAC" Mcelyea and he had a good job was not in need of money i knew Jeff really well and it was not on his own on that one. I have also been friends with combs for along time too and me and him did some crazy things along time ago and Combs was the instgator pumping me up to do the things but when we got caught it was all me. I talked to a friend who just got out of jail and talked to combs in jail and his story is that they were in the stolen truck and combs didnt know it was stoled and they pulled up at farm fresh and Mac grabbed some change out the truck and said he was going to get a soda. Then Jeff came running out with the gun and a ladys puse. I just want every body to know Combs isnt perfect in this but he is going to blame it on our dead friend and get out of it and that is not right.
