Hearing set for accused murderer

A preliminary hearing has been set for a local man charged with second degree murder.
Tony W. Covey, 39, was arrested Saturday, Feb. 21 in connection with the death of Shelby F. Cline, the woman he lived with at 323 Summit Street, located off Mount Olivet Road in Pulaski, according to a press release from Pulaski Police Chief G.W. Roche.
Cline was found dead early Saturday morning on Feb. 21 at the Summit Street residence, after Pulaski Police responded to a 911 call at approximately 1:30 a.m. reporting a homicide at the residence.
The preliminary indication of the cause of Cline’s death was an apparent cut to the throat resulting in massive bload loss, according to Roche.
A preliminary hearing for Covey, who is being charged with second degree murder, is set for Wednesday, April 8 at 1:15 p.m. in Pulaski County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court. The hearing is being held in Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court because of the domestic nature of the incident.
Covey and Cline were not married, but were co-habitants at the Summit Street residence, where they had just moved within two days before Cline’s death, Roche said.
Currently, Covey is being held at New River Valley Regional Jail without bond.
However, this is not Covey’s first criminal charge.
In 1996, he plead guilty to voluntary manslaughter and unlawful wounding, and served five years of a 10-year sentencing, according to online records from the Pulaski County Circuit Court.
These charged stemmed from a fight and fatal stabbing on Sunday, May 28, 1995 at the Pulaski Market on Valley Street in Pulaski, according to articles from The Southwest Times.
