Man Charged In Ex-Miner’s Death Extradited To West Virginia


BARBOURSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) — A West Virginia man accused in the death of a retired coal miner has been arrested in Kentucky and sent back to his home state.

The Herald-Dispatch reports 33-year-old Ance Matthew Marcum was extradited Friday to a Barboursville jail on charges including negligent homicide. He’s accused of leaving the scene of a May crash on state Route 152 that killed 63-year-old retired miner Jesse Dingess, of Genoa.

Wayne County deputies have said Dingess was riding an ATV when he was hit by a Ford Mustang. The car was later found abandoned. It’s unclear if Marcum was the driver.

Authorities have said local and federal law enforcement agencies found Marcum last week hiding in a closet in Fallsburg, Kentucky. It’s unclear if Marcum has a lawyer.
