Carroll Gregg, Jr., charged with first-degree murder, denied bond

Carroll Gregg, Jr
Though he is a long-term resident in Fauquier, Carroll Gregg, Jr., who was charged with first-degree murder on June 6, was denied bond by Judge Herman A. Whisenant today.

Timothy Gregg said he would allow his older brother to live at his house which is on a farm owned by Jessica Matthews, the president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and her husband, Gen. Charles Boyd, the Chairman of the Board of Directors at the Center for the National Interest.

Boyd testified that during his employment at the farm, "[Gregg] needs no supervision."

"He has access to our house. He can gain entry anytime he wants. I have complete confidence in him," he said.

Fisher asked Boyd if Timothy is a hunter, to which he responded yes. Timothy stated that if bond was granted, he would clear the firearms from his home, and report to the court if he believed Gregg had a weapon.

Concerning the character witnesses, Fisher said, "They don't know the side [of Gregg] the law knows."

Fisher contested their testimonies by stating that he produced a .30-06 with a scope, listing a string of assault and battery arrests—though they date back to 20 years ago and only produced two convictions, and brought forth a witness, Thomas Allen Calloway.

Calloway said he and Gregg were once involved in a physical fight during which Gregg said that he would 'blow his head off' in front of Calloway's 11-year-old daughter.

Gregg, who was charged with the June 6 murder in the slaying of Junior Montero Sanchez of Hyattsville, Md., is quoted as saying that the shooting was "just an accident," according to a search warrant filed in Fauquier County Circuit Court.

Just after midnight, 23-year-old Montero Sanchez was shot and killed in the 10000 block of Conde Road.

A neighbor called 911 for a suspicious incident, and when Fauquier sheriff's Sgt. Shores arrived, he believed there had been an accident involving a black tow truck that was towing a dark-colored pickup down an embankment.

When Shores found Gregg, who rents an apartment in a barn on the 10000 block of Conde Road, he asked what happened.

Gregg replied that it was "just an accident."

Upon questioning, the man also gestured that he owned the black pickup in tow.

When asked where the tow-truck driver was, Gregg replied, "He's in there dead."

"I shot him," Gregg said, according to the affidavit. "I shot, fell, then shot again. It was an accident."

They shouldn't be allowed to do this in the middle of the night, he said.

According to Fisher, Gregg's vehicle was previously repossessed in 2011, and 2012.
