Warrant Filed for Murder Suspect’s Blood Sugar Measuring Device

Posted: Updated:

Investigators want to know whether complications from diabetes played a role in a murder at Drake Incorporated in Waynesboro.

They have in their possession a blood sugar-measuring device that belonged to Boyd Wiseman, who was indicted on second-degree murder charges in this case.

The day after Wiseman was indicted, investigators filed a search warrant in Waynesboro Circuit Court to get permission to look through the device Wiseman, who's diabetic, used to take his blood sugar. They want to see if they can find any readings from that day or any clues at all that will help them in this case.

At his last hearing, Wiseman told investigators he was feeling foggy in the head when he apparently shot his co-worker at Drake the morning of February 27. He says all he remembers was hearing two loud bangs and his co-worker, Jeffery Earhart, falling over.

Wiseman was on five medications at the time, including Vicodin and Xanax. His defense team has says they plan to argue he was not mentally sound at the time.

Wiseman apparently had some difficulties with diabetes for a couple of years leading up to the shooting.

He's due back in court September 8 for another hearing. A trial date has not yet been set.
