A man accused of robbing, beating and holding three men hostage at Stonewall Bar in Cabell County last New Year's Day has been found guilty on all charges.
Friday morning, William Fykes took the stand in his own defense. He claimed he was dealing drugs with one of the victims and was hired to stage a robbery at the bar. Fykes says he played along with the men who are shown on surveillance video pleading for their lives.
Fykes got away with more than $20,000, but was caught just minutes after he left the bar.
