*CG locator Roanoke Co.

All three students, 18 year old
Sean McGhee and Tyler Moses Moore,
along with 17 year old Brittany
Goldberg went in front of the school
board last night for an expulsion
hearing.

All three are accused of throwing
paint cans off a hotel during a field
trip to New York.

After more than three hours of
debate, the school board expelled one
student, expelled another but will
suspend that punishment pending the
negotiation of a contract, the third
faces alternative education.

It's hard to say which student
got what punishment because the school
board cannot legally release their

names.

Galax Police Chief Rick Clark
says his department started getting
reports of graffiti about nine months
ago when it appeared on public
housing...then it spread.

Chief Clark also says there has
not been an increase in violent crimes,
and he does not believe there is a
gang problem in Galax.

However, he does believe there is
an organized influence to traffic drugs
into the area.

GRAPHIC=Suspicious Death New information has been


released about how a Halifax woman was
electrocuted on railroad property in
Martinsville last week.

City police say Shelby and
James Reagan were stealing copper wire
and selling it.

One of them would climb a utility
pole and cut the wire while the other
would roll it up.

Lieutenant G-C Dove of the
Martinsville P-D says he believes
"Shelby Reagan may have got hold of a
live wire," and that's how she died.

Dove says the line carries
480 volts of electricity.

JAMES Reagan has been charged
with removing a power line, attempted
grand larceny and trespassing on
railroad property.

family is still waiting for justice.

VO-NAT 15 year old Edward Bertrand was


shot once in the stomach in June of
2004.

19 year old Zach Linkous is
charged with first degree murder.

Last week, just one day before
jury selection the trial was postponed
for a second time.

Bertrand's family does not
believe the shooting was an accident.

They say the wait for justice has
been difficult, but they believe the
truth will finally come out when the
case goes to trial.

The Bertrand's credit God and the
love and support of each other with
getting them through Edward's death.

Both sides will be back in court
next month to pick a new trial date.
