Shooting Death Case Headed To Grand Jury

Bobby Ray Landman III faced a preliminary hearing in Northumberland County General District Court for the fatal shooting of Seth Dutton. The judge determined there was enough evidence to send the case to a grand jury. Landman claimed self-defense, stating Dutton had approached him aggressively. However, witness testimony painted a complex picture, involving prior disputes and conflicting accounts of the events leading to the shooting. The grand jury convenes on July 23 to consider the case.
