WELLSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - Brooke County’s prosecutor says a recent string of murder cases is unprecedented in the county.

Prosecutor Joseph Barki says there had been two murder cases in the county in the past 13 years. Now, his office is handling five at the same time.

Barki tells The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register (https://bit.ly/1Bn6vQy ) that none of the cases appear to be drug-related.

He says his office also is handling other serious cases and the murder cases are creating a strain.
