The suspect Jason Scott Marshman is considered armed and dangerous and has a violent past.

We spoke with several members of law enforcement who questioned why Marshman was out on the streets and not in jail.

Let's run down what we know about this guy:

Marshman was expected to be in Charlottesville circuit court on June 28, 2007 to stand trial on charges of possessing a firearm as a convicted felon, reckless handling of a firearm and obstruction of justice.

And even with prior felony convictions in New York for an attempted assault in the first degree and intimidation of a witness and with felony convictions in the state of Virginia, he was let out on bond by a Charlottesville judge.

Police said Marshman lived on Michie Drive, but neighbors say they never saw him. Yet a security guard we talked to said he spotted him the other day and wondered why he wasn't still in jail.

Marshman is wanted on charges of first degree murder, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Police said he has been known to lie to officers and again to consider him armed and dangerous. If you spot him call 911 immediately.

Right now, police are not sure if he is still in the area or if he has fled the state.
