Two felony cases sent to Circuit Court

Attorneys in two separate felony cases waived their clients’ rights to preliminary hearings in Randolph County Magistrate Court Wednesday, meaning both cases will be bound over to a grand jury in Randolph County Circuit Court.

– The first case involves Eileen Deshayes, 27, of Elkins, who was charged with operating or attempting to operate a clandestine lab Jan. 5 after police allegedly found materials commonly used to make methamphetamine in a hotel room that she had recently occupied.

Deshayes’ attorney is William T. Nestor.

According to a previous report, West Virginia State Police officers allegedly spotted Deshayes throwing out various precursors to methamphetamine in a dumpster near Journeez Bar; the items included a bag containing a Coca-Cola bottle with residue inside, plastic tubing sticking through a hole in the bottle’s lid, lithium batteries and a lithium strip.

In the trash can of Deshayes’ room at the Econo Lodge, police also allegedly found a small piece of clear tubing with a “jagged cut” on one end and several pairs of plastic gloves.

– The second case bound over involves a Norton man who was arrested for allegedly transporting approximately 80 grams of marijuana in his car Feb. 20 after police reportedly spotted him driving with a license plate that was registered to another vehicle.

Dylan Craig Kyle, 30, was arraigned on charges of possession with intent to deliver marijuana greater than 15 grams, a felony. Police allegedly recovered two individually packaged bags of a green leafy substance that weighed about 80 grams from Kyle’s vehicle.

Kyle’s attorney is Richard Shryock.

Kyle reportedly gave police a recorded statement in which he admitted that he’d purchased the marijuana locally and was on his way to sell it to make a profit.
