Shifflett, ‘wife’ appear in court
Elvis Gene Shifflett, the man shot by Charlottesville police October 20 after a seven-day manhunt, appeared in court yesterday to face the woman he is accused of assaulting. After listening to the testimony of Linda Shifflett and the owner of Court Square Tavern, juvenile and domestic relations judge Edward DeJ. Berry certified felony charges against Shifflett, according to the Daily Progress.
The Progress explains that even though Linda and Elvis lived together and shared a last name, they were not married. This is the first time that her name has appeared in a media account of the incidents.
