Attorneys in two separate felony cases waived their clients' rights to preliminary hearings in Randolph County Magistrate Court Wednesday, meaning both cases will be bound over to a grand jury in Randolph County Circuit Court.
- The first case involves Eileen Deshayes, 27, of Elkins, who was charged with operating or attempting to operate a clandestine lab Jan. 5 after police allegedly found materials commonly used to make methamphetamine in a hotel room that she had recently occupied.
Deshayes' attorney is William T. Nestor.
According to a previous report, West Virginia State Police officers allegedly spotted Deshayes throwing out various precursors to methamphetamine in a dumpster near Journeez Bar; the items included a bag containing a Coca-Cola bottle with residue inside, plastic tubing sticking through a hole in the bottle's lid, lithium batteries and a lithium strip.
In the trash can of Deshayes' room at the Econo Lodge, police also allegedly found a small piece of clear tubing with a "jagged cut" on one end and several pairs of plastic gloves.
- The second case bound over involves a Norton man who was arrested for allegedly transporting approximately 80 grams of marijuana in his car Feb. 20 after police reportedly spotted him driving with a license plate that was registered to another vehicle.
Dylan Craig Kyle, 30, was arraigned on charges of possession with intent to deliver marijuana greater than 15 grams, a felony. Police allegedly recovered two individually packaged bags of a green leafy substance that weighed about 80 grams from Kyle's vehicle.
Kyle's attorney is Richard Shryock.
Kyle reportedly gave police a recorded statement in which he admitted that he'd purchased the marijuana locally and was on his way to sell it to make a profit.
