HAZELTON, W.Va. (AP) — A West Virginia man is charged with first-degree murder after allegedly shooting a Maryland man in the face with a 12-gauge shotgun.

Justin Michael Fontaine, 28, was being held without bond Monday at Tygart Valley Regional Jail.

State Police say they found Jerame Adam Sines, 33, of Friendsville, Md., dead in a pool of blood on an enclosed porch at Fontaine’s home Saturday evening.

Media outlets say Fontaine was arraigned in Preston County Magistrate Court. A preliminary hearing is set for Nov. 13.

State Police did not immediately comment on a possible motive for the slaying.
