“Based on a humanitarian need for medical care,” Richmond County Circuit Court Judge R. Michael McKenney, granted a medical furlough with supervision for Michael Veney, a defendant in a murder trial. The Northern Neck Regional Jail will transport Veney to Hunter Holmes McGuire VA Medical Center in Richmond to receive treatment for a recurring infection and fever, which the judge noted would “affect the defendant’s ability to assist his attorney in his defense.”

Veney is charged with the First-Degree Murder of Edwardo “Jay” Garner on July 21, 2018. Richmond County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call at 2:24 a.m. about a vehicle stopped near the intersection of Route 3 and Farnham Creek Road. Deputies found Garner lying next to the vehicle, and he was pronounced dead at the scene of an apparent gunshot wound. Veney’s son, Trevaughn Veney was also charged with First-Degree Murder, Accessory Before the Fact.
