Wheeling Jesuit Suspects Say Victim Started Fight

WHEELING – The two men charged with murdering Kevin Figaniak each said the Wheeling Jesuit student initiated the fight that allegedly led to his death, a police detective said Thursday.

Magistrate Joe Roxby found probable cause Thursday to bind the cases of Tyler Peacock, 22, of Clewiston, Fla., and Jarrett Chandler, 24, of Winnfield, La., over to circuit court for consideration by the next grand jury.

During Peacock’s hearing, Detective Daniel Holmes testified Figaniak and a fellow WJU student were walking from Ye Olde Alpha to campus Aug. 31 when they encountered the defendants and Tyler Witty outside of the Owl’s Nest. A verbal altercation ensued, and Peacock, Chandler and Witty followed the students 938 feet. FULL STORY
