Chumbley goes to grand jury

Bond reduction, dismissal denied



a. provides the physical means by which another person commits or attempts to commit suicide or

b. participates in a physical act by which another person commits or attempts to commit suicide.

“The evidence is very clear,” Cessna said. “This is what she wanted to do. There has never been any evidence of malice. He (Chumbley) has done everything in his power to care for her. This is a woman who has lost hope.”

But Assistant County Attorney Bruce Bentley countered that theory, stating that even if Virginia Chumbley wished to end her struggle, her husband had still committed a crime.

Judge Hammons denied both of Cessna’s motions, the first to uphold the murder charge and deny the motion to amend the charge to assisting in a suicide. He also denied reducing Chumbley’s bond from its current amount of $200,000 cash.
