A Philippi man accused of second degree murder has waived his preliminary hearing, Barbour County Prosecuting Attorney Leckta L. Poling said.
The case of Charles Joseph Marsh, 33, of 340 Dogwood St., was bound over to the grand jury after he waived his preliminary hearing in court Wednesday. However, he has been placed on some restrictions after changes were made to his bond.
Marsh appeared in court on a motion to modify his $150,000 cash-only bond. Poling said the bond was converted from a cash-only bond to a cash or surety bond in the same amount.
He is not to use drugs, consume alcohol, hunt or have any contact with the victim's family.
Marsh is accused of killing Gregory E. Durst during a bar fight at a tavern in the county Oct. 13. Durst died 10 days later from injuries suffered in the fight, officials said.
