Homicide Ruled

Posted on 31st July 2010 at 08:02

It’s being reported that the July 21 death of Emanuel “Wes” Wesley of Longview is a homicide, so it’s now possible that murder charges will be filed against the four people who were jailed in connection with his shooting back in February of last year. Saturday’s Daily News has the story on the report from the Clark County Coroner’s Office; Wesley died at a hospice in Vancouver, one of several institutions he’d been in following his shooting and subsequent stroke. The reports are now being sent to the Longview Police Department for review, and a report will then be presented to the Cowlitz County Prosecuting Attorney’s office. Four people were convicted in connection with the shooting, which was characterized as “revenge” for injuries that Wesley supposedly caused to a young boy. Ringo Jo Hubbard is currently serving an prison term for attempted murder in the case; Edward Scott Pelton pleaded guilty to first-degree burglary with a firearm, and Delayna Ann Stanley entered a guilty plea to rendering criminal assistance and second-degree assault in the case. The fourth person, Jennifer Sue Lowe, pleaded guilty to first-degree assault, admitting that she’s the one who started the events that led to the shooting.
