Giles County Sheriff Release
At 1:17 a.m. on April 20th, 2021 our office received a report of a subject who had been shot in the 500 block of Painter School Road in Pembroke. Shortly before 2:00 a.m. responding deputies found a pickup truck that was occupied by 51 year-old Angela Denise Boyd of New Castle, VA.
The truck had stopped on private property off of Painter School Road near Royal Drive. Deputies were made aware that 44 year-old William Dee Martin, of Newport, had fled from the pickup truck prior to their arrival.
Officers from Narrows, Pearisburg, Pembroke, and the Virginia State Police assisted deputies with forming a perimeter around the area where Martin was last seen. At 7:22 a.m. a deputy on roving patrol spotted a subject walking around 3/4 of a mile from the original scene. A State Police Tactical Unit was able to take the subject into custody at 7:40 a.m. without incident.
The victim, who is not being identified at this time, has been treated and released from the hospital. Boyd was also arrested. Both Boyd and Martin are charged with breaking and entering while armed with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to break and enter, and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
The investigation is ongoing, however there is no longer a threat to public safety. We would like to thank our local and state partners for their assistance.
