RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The first appearance in Spotsylvania County Circuit Court for a sheriff’s deputy charged in the April shooting of Isiah Brown has been postponed to September.
Brown suffered life-threatening injuries after being shot multiple times on April 21. Turbyfill was the deputy that responded to Catharpin Road in Spotsylvania and came upon Brown, who was on the phone with 911 dispatch when the shooting took place. Brown survived the incident and spent multiple weeks recovering in a local hospital before being sent home.
The case is being prosecuted by the Fredericksburg Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office. Prosecutors and two circuit court judges in Spotsylvania have recused themselves from this case.
