Crum Shooting Suspect Continues to Improve
State Police said the suspect in the slaying of Mingo County Sheriff Eugene Crum is up and moving around at a Huntington hospital. Sgt. Michael Baylous said Monday that Tennis Melvin Maynard is improving daily and expected to survive the gunshot wound inflicted by a deputy who chased him after last Wednesday's shooting. Still no official word on a possible motive for the shooting. Maynard's father said last week his son is mentally disturbed. Maynard is charged with first-degree murder and with attempted murder for allegedly aiming a weapon at the deputy.
