Woman faces murder charge in botched pharmacy robbery

WHEELING, W.Va. -- A woman charged with murder in a botched pharmacy robbery in Wheeling is scheduled to go to trial in December.

According to WTOV-TV, Melody Fisher was arraigned Wednesday in Ohio County Circuit Court. She pleaded not guilty to all charges, including murder.

Police say Fisher and Kevin Walnoha were attempting to rob the Elm Grove Pharmacy on May 25 when Walnoha was fatally shot by a pharmacist. Investigators say Fisher was at the wheel of the getaway car.

An investigation concluded the pharmacist was justified in shooting Walnoha.

Fisher was indicted earlier this week on a charge of felony murder, among other counts.

Her trial is scheduled for Dec. 17.
