A West Virginia man has been charged with making Wednesday’s bomb threat at the University of Virginia.
Police say Thomas Ray Morgan of Brenton, W.Va. was taken into custody without incident around 9 a.m. Thursday and charged with one count of making a bomb threat.
On Wednesday, a phoned-in threat caused the evacuation of a portion of the West Complex at UVa. Health System and Fontaine Research Park.
Morgan is currently being held at the Southern Regional Jail in Beaver, West Virginia.
(Metro) A Virginia House panel is pulling back on a choice by Governor McAuliffe to appoint Boyd Marcus to the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board.
Yesterday, Republicans with the House and Election Committee took Marcus off the Governor's list of appointments.
The position McAuliffe seeks for Marcus requires confirmation by the General Assembly.
Delegate Jackson Miller said he and others made the decision to pull Marcus’s name because he was once a consultant for the Governor.
