December 3rd, 2019 by WCBC Radio

The Mineral Tribune reports the  first-degree murder case against Jimmy Lee Lambert, 33, of Stephens City, Virginia, has been bound over for Circuit Court. Lambert, who is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the Nov. 18 shooting deaths of Donald L. Rutter, 32, and Destiny C. Foster, 25, both of Burlington, appeared before Mineral County Magistrate Pat Amoroso Monday afternoon for a preliminary hearing. Lambert was represented by attorney Ramon Rozas and the state was represented by assistant prosecuting attorney Gaynor Cosner. During the hearing, Lt. Chris Leatherman of the Mineral County Sheriff’s Department testified that when the officers first arrived on the scene, the male victim, Rutter, had been found deceased in a back bedroom of the residence on Maple Hollow Lane, near Burlington.  Rozas asked Leatherman if any of the persons who had been on the scene prior to the shooting actually saw Lambert with a shotgun and he replied they did not. The case will now be placed on the docket for Mineral County Circuit Court.
