Kennedy remain in jail pending state police murder trial


Williamson Man accused of murdering a West Virginia State Police Trooper in Mingo County will remain in jail.

29-year-old Timothy Kennedy, of Matewan, remains in custody following a court’s denial of a motion to be release him on home confinement.

Kennedy is charged with the murder of State Police Sergeant Cory Maynard last June.

That shooting call was in Beech Creek of mingo county. Another man was injured from a previous shooting that summoned police in the first place.

Earlier this year, Kennedy was indicted by a Mingo County Grand Jury on multiple charges. He is charged with first degree murder, first degree robbery, disarming an officer and two attempted murder charges for the civilian shooting and the other trooper that accompanied Maynard on the call.

A change of venue motion is expected in the case, but one has not been filed with the court as of this writing. The defense is seeking another competency evaluation. A previous evaluation found Kennedy competent.

Trial is currently scheduled to begin in September. Kennedy is being held at the Western Regional Jail without bond.
