Man At SRJ On Murder Charge Overdoses While In Custody

A Raleigh County man who was arrested on a recent murder charge has now been charged with being in possession of heroin after overdosing at Southern Regional Jail.

On December 10, Raleigh County Sheriff Deputies responded to a residence at 264 Center Street in Crab Orchard where it was discovered that Jeremy Duane Gambrell had been struck in the head and was unresponsive.

During their investigation, officers learned that Herbert Wayne Doss, 47, of Crab Orchard, had engaged in a physical altercation with Gambrell, allegedly choking him until he fell to the floor, the criminal complaint filed in Raleigh County states. Once Gambrell was on the floor, Doss picked up an object and struck him in the head, resulting in his death.

Doss was arrested and taken to Southern Regional Jail on a felony charge of murder. His bail was set at $25,000.

On December 11, a West Virginia State Trooper was dispatched to Southern Regional Jail after two inmates, one of them being Doss, had overdosed and were administered Narcan, according to a separate criminal complaint, also filed in Raleigh County. Both men were transported to Raleigh General Hospital.

According to the complaint, Doss admitted to the Trooper that he “took some heroin and woke up with correctional officers on top of him.”

After being administered Narcan, Doss bit one correctional officer on the arm, the complaint alleges. The other inmate who had overdosed, Hank Weese, also admitted to taking heroin.

Doss is now being charged with one felony count of possession of a controlled substance while in a correctional facility and one misdemeanor count of battery on a correctional officer.

No bond was set regarding this matter.
