CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Police in Virginia have charged a Charlottesville man with second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of a man along the Rivanna River Trail.
Cody Jason Cappel was found dead with multiple gunshot wounds Thursday night behind Peter Jefferson Parkway in Albermarle County.
On Friday, police arrested 49-year-old Allan Ray Via in Cappel’s killing. The Daily Progress reports that the two men appear to be acquaintances who lived in tents near the trail.
In addition to second-degree murder, Via was charged with possessing ammunition as a convicted felon. Albermarle Police said additional charges are pending against Via.
Police said in a news release that the shooting is being treated as an isolated incident.
