Roanoke Girl Abduction Case Sent to Grand Jury

February 8, 2011

The case against a man accused of abducting his slain girlfriend's 12-year-old daughter is going to a Roanoke County grand jury.

Roanoke County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Judge Philip Trompeter found probable cause Tuesday to certify the abduction charge against Jeffrey Easley to the grand jury. The Roanoke Times reports that the grand jury is scheduled to meet April 1.

The 32-year-old Easley disappeared with Brittany Smith on Dec. 6, the same day Brittany's mother was found dead at her home. Police found Easley and Brittany a week later in San Francisco.

No one has been charged in Tina Smith's death.
