The man accused of shooting and killing a 10-year-old boy in Orange County appeared in front of a judge Monday afternoon. Billy Joe Lee is accused of killing George Allen "Bubbie" Toombs, the son of his ex-fiancé Tina Marie Toombs.
Lee was scheduled for a preliminary hearing today, but was granted a continuance. The Commonwealth’s attorney had witnesses ready to begin the trial today, but Lee is requesting a new defense attorney.
Lee is facing charges of felony child abuse and neglect, shooting in the commission of a felony, discharging a firearm within the home with the death of an individual, and child endangerment.
Toombs is facing felony child abuse and neglect charges. She waived right to a preliminary hearing today, and is due back in court at the end of July.
