CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A Clay County man formerly convicted of voluntary manslaughter has been indicted for being in possession of a weapon.
Jimmy Allen Woods, 50, of Bickmore allegedly had a .44 caliber revolver on Dec. 19. He pleaded guilty in 1992 in Kanawha Circuit Court in the shooting death of William Satler at Nancy's Dinner Hole in Birch River.
Woods was 29 at the time of the 1990 murder. The case was moved from Nicholas to Kanawha County because of pretrial publicity. As a result of the conviction, Woods lost the right to possess a firearm.
This is the second time he has allegedly violated that law. He was convicted in 1995 in federal court of possessing a firearm. He faces up to 10 years in prison this time if convicted.
