HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — Hampton Police have arrested an 84-year-old man for last week’s murder of a woman found shot in her front yard.

On Tuesday, David Junior Priddy was charged with murder and use of a firearm in commission of a felony for the shooting that occurred Thursday. Katherine Ann Fleming, 65, was found in front of her home on Shawen Drive suffering from a gunshot wound. She later died at a local hospital.

Priddy and Flemming were next door neighbors. Court documents reveal police confiscated several guns from Priddy’s home. An autopsy connected the bullet that killed Flemming to one of those guns.

Detectives have not said what led up to the shooting.

Wednesday Priddy was being held at the Hampton Roads Regional Jail without bond.
