A man accused of murder faced a judge Monday. Police said Kenneth Grubb was indicted for allegedly killing Robert Burns in May.
He pleaded not guilty last month.
Burns’ family told WYMT they will be in court for every hearing until a jury decides Grubb’s fate.
“We will get justice served in this for my brother. I’m not going to stop and they’re going to find out I am not going to stop,” said Kimberly Shouse, sister of Robert Burns.
The judge set another pretrial conference for November 6th.

The Daily News reports
Claiborne County taxpayers will see no increases in their property taxes, or be burdened with yet another wheel tax to cover the new fiscal year budget, for the next 12 months. The nine-member budget committee managed to pull the proverbial rabbit out of the hat, balancing the 2017-18 budget with the help of $2.58 per $100 of assessed property value – the same as last year.
A typographical error on the original resolution, appearing to show an increase by 10 cents in the county property tax, was caught and apparently corrected prior to its passage. Commission chair David Mundy pointed out the mistake, during the meeting.
