Police say wanted man is charged in deaths of 4 whose bodies found in W.Va. wooded area

Source: AP-Washington Post

SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A man was charged Monday with murder in the deaths of four people — including two young children — whose bodies were found in a wooded part of central West Virginia, authorities said.

James Belknap was arrested Monday afternoon and faces four counts of first-degree murder, said West Virginia State Police Sgt. Michael Baylous.

Belknap was arrested at a roadblock not far from a crime scene that Baylous described as “gruesome.” He declined to elaborate but added that investigating officers said it was one of the worst crime scenes they had ever seen, in part, because two of the victims were children.

“These guys are going to have a hard time dealing with all this,” Baylous said.
