Philbrook Trial Set for 2015

Campbell Co., VA - Robert Philbrook will go on trial in February 2015 for the murders of his grandparents in their Campbell County home.

Robert Philbrook faces four counts of capital murder for the shooting deaths of 73-year-old John Philbrook and 72-year-old Virginia Philbrook.{} The couple was found shot to death in February 2013.

The indictment included two counts of capital murder during the commission of a robbery, one capital count for killing more than one person within a year, and the fourth is for killing more than one person in the same event.

Robert Philbrook waived his right to a speedy trial Tuesday in Campbell County Circuit Court, so his attorneys will have more time to prepare his defense.
