BUCKHANNON – The man alleged to have killed his father by partially decapitating him was one of 48 people indicted in Upshur County Circuit Court Tuesday.

Timothy Allen McWilliams, 65, of Buckhannon, was indicted on one count of murder, a felony, for allegedly killing his father, Leo McWilliams, during an altercation at their home, 449 Victoria St., on March 8, 2018. McWilliams has been held without bond in the Tygart Valley Regional Jail since March 2018.

During a Dec. 4, 2018 hearing, McWilliams’ attorney, Dennis Willett asked that bond be set for his client, a motion that 26th Judicial Circuit Court Judge Kurt Hall ultimately denied.

Hall said although he didn’t believe McWilliams was a flight risk, he believed he could potentially threaten the safety of his family, with whom McWilliams planned to live should he make bail.

Following the December hearing, Willett said he planned to reintroduce a motion to set bond at a later point in time, possibly after McWilliams’ indictment.

The grand jury handed down 54 true bills Tuesday, indicting a total of 48 individuals including McWilliams.
