[ARCHIVED] Arrest made arrest in homicide

James City County Police Department patrol vehicle

Just before 10 a.m. today, May 17, James City County Police officers were dispatched to a residence at the 1800 block of Ferrell Drive in the Brookside Haven subdivision to check on the welfare of a female resident who did not show up for work this morning.

Officers arrived and found the front door to be locked, but went in through a rear door and located 64 year old Edna Webb deceased in the kitchen area of the home. The cause of death appears to be blunt force trauma; however, investigators are awaiting results from the autopsy.

Michael Alan Webb, the 34 year old son of the victim, was located at the Happy Shopper on Pocahontas Trail. He was taken into custody without incident and was subsequently arrested and charged with second degree murder in connection with this incident.

Webb is being held at Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail without bond. Media may contact VPRJ for mugshot.
