HAMLIN, W.Va. (AP) - A Lincoln County man has been charged in a shooting that left one person dead and another wounded.

Media outlets report that 48-year-old Andrew Staggs faces murder and malicious wounding charges. State Police Capt. Dave Nelson says Staggs shot 29-year-old Katie Toler and 36-year-old Chad Mays, both of Branchland, early Monday. Toler was killed. Mays was in intensive care at CAMC General Hospital.

Nelson says Toler and Mays apparently got into an argument with Staggs outside his house. According to a criminal complaint, Staggs fired four shots.

Staggs was being held without bail Monday afternoon at the Western Regional Jail in Barboursville.
