Officials say the charge stems from the death of an 8-year old last Wednesday. Police went to Town Court Lane and found Brandon Ryan Thornton with a knife-wound in his chest.
A neighbor who says she was inside at the time says she had no idea children were playing with a knife. She says Thornton ran into her yard looking for help and that she and others did all they could- but the boy died later at Lynchburg General. Neither the Amherst Police Chief nor Commonwealth's Attorney would say exactly how Thornton was stabbed. The suspect has been released into the custody of his parents.

Nothin' Fancy is going on in Buena Vista this weekend, but that's the idea.

[SUPER=03-Buena Vista;]

It's a three day bluegrass festival, put on by the group, Nothin' Fancy. The Rockbridge County based-band has been putting on the show for the last three years, and not only plays at the event, but does much of the planning and management. Band members say they are amazed by the growth of the festival, and think bluegrass is perfect entertainment for the family.
