Weirton murder case moves forward

Updated: Tuesday, February 11 2014, 01:26 PM EST



Leslie Craig Arnold Jr. appeared in Hancock County Circuit Court Tuesday morning to learn when he will go to trial.

Arnold was indicted by the Hancock County Grand Jury in January on several charges including murder, concealment of a deceased human body, first degree robbery and possession of a firearm.

All of the charges stem from an armed robbery investigation back in Dec. 2013 that led to the discovery of Tonia Garan’s body in a closet at the Overbrook Towers in Weirton.

A trial date for the robbery charge only has been set for April 1.  A competency evaluation will be completed before a trial date for the murder charge is set.
