Myers, 55, of Big Sandy, is accused of killing 52-year-old Cindy Espinoza on July 2 at her rural western Upshur County home.
An autopsy showed the woman, whose home in the 1900 block of Nutmeg Road had a Big Sandy address, died from a gunshot wound to the head, Upshur County Pct. 2 Justice of the Peace Lyle Potter said.
Myers remained in Upshur County Jail Monday under $350,000 bond, according to the county’s judicial website.
Testimony in the case is scheduled to open June 18, Byrd said.
Former Upshur County District Attorney Tim Cone, now in private law practice near Gilmer, is Myers’ court-appointed attorney. 115th District Judge Lauren Parish will preside in the case.
