A quick day in court for the ex-Franklin County deputy accused of killing his ex-wife and getting into a shootout on Memorial Day.
Jonathan Agee spent only a few minutes in a Roanoke City courtroom. He waived his right to a preliminary trial Tuesday. Agee is still in a wheelchair after being shot multiple times by state police on Interstate 81.
He is charged in Roanoke with killing his ex-wife, Jenny Agee, at the Sheetz gas station on Orange Avenue.
He then is said to have driven in a chase with state police, shooting a trooper before being taken into custody.
His murder charge could be certified by a grand jury the first week of August.
The man accused of killing his ex-wife and leading police on a cross-county chase on Memorial Day is expected in court.
Jonathan Agee is scheduled for a preliminary hearing in Roanoke Tuesday. Agee is a former Franklin County deputy accused of killing his ex-wife outside Sheetz in Roanoke.
Officers say he led police on a chase in his own squad car into Montgomery County. Investigators say he shot a Virginia State trooper once the chase ended.
Agee was also wounded in the incident.
