Trial Ahead for Culpeper Man Charged with Murder in Charlottesville


The trial for a Culpeper man accused of gunning down a man inside a Charlottesville home is moving forward.

Jordan Jerome Eaddy appeared in Cville Circuit Court Thursday, September 15. He confirmed he is not waving his right to speedy trial, and will face a jury for three days starting November 28.

Eaddy is charged with first-degree murder in connection with a home invasion and fatal shooting on South 1st Street on November 21, 2015.

Investigators believe Eaddy killed 31-year-old Floyd Alston Jr. during a robbery that went wrong. Police say a woman and a small child were in the apartment during the shooting, but they were not harmed.

Charlottesville police had also charged Eaddy with attempted robbery, as well breaking and entering.

Eaddy’s attorney says while the charges are severe, the facts of the case are ” not complicated.”
