An Augusta County murder case against a Staunton man is moving to a grand jury.
Christopher Simmons, 50, waived his right to a preliminary hearing Thursday in Augusta County General District Court.
Simmons is charged with first-degree murder.
The Augusta County Sheriff’s Office says on December 17 Simmons hid inside home on Morris Mill Road.
When a woman and her fiancé got home, Simmons confronted them with a gun. Christopher Jon Miller, 36, was shot and killed.
A grand jury is scheduled to take up the case on January 23.
