Letcher Co. case heading to grand jury


Whitesburg, Ky (WYMT) - The case against a Letcher County man accused of wanton endangerment is headed to the grand jury.

During a preliminary hearing Tuesday, Roger Elswick's defense waived the right to the hearing, and no testimony was heard.

Elswick was charged with wanton endangerment after his wife, Connie Webb Elswick, was found dead on the side of Cram Creek road.

An arrest citation says the two were fighting when Roger Elswick drove away. He told police his wife must have jumped on the back of the car and fallen off.

Roger Elswick's bond was reduced to $50,000 full cash with home incarceration.
