Man Accused of Killing Police Officer to Be Arraigned

A court appearance for the suspect in the shooting death of a West Virginia State Police officer is set for Saturday morning.

According to police, Sgt. Cory Maynard was slain in an ambush-style attack by 29-year-old Timothy Kennedy while Maynard was responding to a report of gunfire along Beech Creek Road close to Matewan in Mingo County.

Kennedy was hauled into prison on Friday just before midnight.

The tweet below confirms the news:

Before being transported to the South Western Regional Jail in Holden, which is located in Logan County, he underwent processing at the West Virginia State Police Williamson Detachment.

Kennedy will be arraigned via video on Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Mingo County Courthouse in Williamson, according to the West Virginia State Police.

Kennedy has already had difficulties.

In 2020, WSAZ reported that Kennedy had violated the terms of a shuttered mine in Mingo County.
