Henry Co. Murder Case Heads to Grand Jury

Arthur McClard

Henry Co., VA - A grand jury will hear the case of a man charged with killing a Henry County woman.

Arthur McClard is charged with the first degree murder of Joyce Mitchell, 74. She was found dead in her home in September.

Search warrants show McClard told investigators he strangled Mitchell and then hit her in the head with a dumbbell.

McClard was also charged with robbery, but that was dropped because the Commonwealth's Attorney says there was not enough evidence.

McClard waived the preliminary hearing for his other charges and will face a grand jury in January.
