Crimes and Courts

Meredith Broome, also known as Meredith McLeod, appeared in Ohio County court Thursday morning for her extradition.

Broome was arrested early Tuesday morning at Wilson Lodge in connection to the murder of her stepfather, former Powhatan Mayor Marvin Brown.

Judge James Mazzone said that Belmont County has a warrant out for her arrest for murder.

Broome waived her extradition back to Ohio, choosing not to challenge the legality of her arrest in court.

Belmont County authorities are set to pick her up Thursday afternoon, but they have until Noon on Friday to take her into custody.

Brown, 73, was shot through the back in his own hunting cabin in Powhatan on November 18th, 2013.

An attachment to the warrant for Broome’s arrest said that an accomplice in the case to the Belmont County Sheriff’s Department that he was the shooter, and Meredith was the instigator.

The accomplice reportedly knew details that were never released to the public, like the position of Brown’s body, where the bullet entered, and that it had been taken away.
