The man accused of killing his estranged wife at a Prince William County Chick-fil-A faced a judge Tuesday morning and will have his case proceed to the grand jury.
The suspect, 52-year-old Daniel Everette, showed no emotion as two witnesses testified during the preliminary hearing. The courtroom was packed with family members of the couple, who were in the midst of a divorce at the time of the slaying.
Everette is accused of killing his wife Alice Jenkins Everette in February. Police said Everette tracked down his wife to the restaurant, walked up to her car and fatally shot her several times.
A detective testified Tuesday that the victim’s body had several gunshot wounds. Some of the wounds were “through and through.” Another witness, who worked in the same building as the victim, watched the incident unfold from a distance of about 40 feet. He described the scene as shocking.
Family members of the victim said it was hard to relive the events of that day.
