A critical eyewitness said she will show up in court for a deadly Charleston shooting case.
Donald Raines is facing trial Sept. 12 in Kanawha Circuit Court for voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of Jerry Baldwin in November 2011. Prosecutors had concerns over an eyewitness who had allegedly threatened to kill herself rather than testify in the case. Kanawha Circuit Judge Tod Kaufman had ordered deputies to bring her in when she showed up late on her own.
After a closed hearing, the woman agreed to appear and convinced the court she would not hurt herself. She was released on $5,000 personal recognizance bond.
