Probable cause found in Wilson murder case

CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (WDTV) - Magistrate Keith Marple has ruled that there is enough probable cause to pursue the charges of felony murder and conspiracy to commit murder against 54-year-old Daniel Claude Amster.

Amster is one of three people charged in the death of Keyairy Wilson.

The case will move to circuit court where it will be under consideration for grand Jury.

During the hearing, Sgt. Detective Joseph Walsh of the Clarksburg Police Department testified that Amsler had told detectives that he participated in hiding Wilson's body, but it was his co-defendant Elizabeth Jenkins who actually shot and stabbed Wilson.

According to Walsh, Jenkins admitted to shooting and stabbing Wilson, but maintains that the gunshot was an accident.

A third co-defendant, Warren Kip Hall, was arrested and arraigned on murder and conspiracy to commit murder Thursday.
