The man accused of a double murder in Adams County was in court on Wednesday.

Donovan Fite, 22, of West Union, faces two counts of murder for the shooting deaths of Samuel Freeland Jr. and Regina King.

Prosecutors say Fite waived his right to a preliminary hearing and Judge Alan W. Foster set his bond at $500,000.

The case will move on to an Adams County grand jury.


A West Union man will be in court Monday morning to answer to double murder charges.

Police arrested 22-year-old Donovan Fite for the murders of Samuel Freeland, Jr. and Regina King in Adams County.

The pair was found shot to death last weekend in their home on LF Clock Road.

The Adams County Sheriffs Department says drugs are likely the reason for the murders.
