Trial Postponed in Great Bend Homicide Case

Chapman-Jeffery-150x150A man charged with killing a Great Bend man and leaving his body in a roadside ditch will not go on trial until August.

Thirty-one-year-old Jeffrey Wade Chapman of Great Bend was scheduled to go on trial this week for first-degree murder in the death of 25-year-old Damon Galyardt. The Hutchinson News reports the trial was delayed until Aug. 5 after new attorneys were appointed to represent Chapman. Chapman pleaded innocent in November.

Hunters found Galyardt’s body in November 2011 in a roadside ditch southwest of Great Bend.

Testimony during Chapman’s preliminary hearing in October indicated Chapman was angry because of the way Galyardt treated a woman with whom he was living.

    Does his neck say murder? Or am I not seeing it right?

      I think it says “I am stupid, someone please notice me”.

    I do believe you are right. What a scum bag. Probably getting tore up in jail and wanted to look tough. I just hope the jury sees that when he goes to court and gives him what he deserves!

    I am sure his attorney will have him wear a high collar and tie to cover up his “mirror tattoo”. Hopefully someone will get ahold of him on the inside and he wont make it to trial…tax savings.
