Women arrested in connection with Marvin Brown murder case

Crimes and Courts

Meredith Broome was in a room at Oglebay Park’s Wilson Lodge Monday when authorities served her with a warrant. 

Broome is currently in the Northern Regional Jail.

On Thursday she’ll have an extradition hearing to go back to Belmont County to face charges that she orchestrated a murder-for-hire.

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

This woman is now charged with murder in that case.

She’s known as Meredith McLeod of Powhatan and as Meredith Broome of Rome, Georgia age 35. 

An attachment to the warrant, obtained by 7News, said an accomplice in the case told the Belmont County Sheriff’s Department that he was the shooter, and Meredith McLeod was the instigator.

He knew details that were never released such as the position of the body, where the bullet entered, that the bullet had been taken away.

He said Meredith McLeod furnished him with the gun the same make and model as a gun once owned by Marvin Brown.

The accomplice said he received a total of $12,000 in cash from McLeod, through another person who reportedly got it from Brown’s own business accounts.

The Belmont County prosecutor said another person is a suspect in this case. That person is already in custody for unrelated charges.

And he said still others are thought to be involved but not yet charged.

The investigation is still on going.
