Jason Shell

Bedford County, VA - A man accused of robbing and beating a well-known Bedford County store owner is scheduled to be in court Tuesday for a plea.

Jason Shell is set to make his court appearance Tuesday at 9.

At a hearing in January, a judge certified assault and robbery charges against Shell. Seven witnesses testified, including Bob Terry himself.

Terry's injuries were serious. Terry's family said he had to have screws and wires put in to hold his shattered face together after the beating at Terry's Country Store last year.
