Kanawha man faces gun charge

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A Kanawha County man was arrested over the weekend after allegedly threatening to harm his wife for calling police.

Deputies went to the home of Jackie Deusenberry, 54, near Blount at about 9 p.m. Friday to investigate a domestic call, according to Lt. Sean Crosier of the Kanawha County Sheriff's Department. When they got there, they reportedly could hear Deusenberry threatening his wife for calling police.

Deusenberry was arrested and charged with witness tampering, Crosier said. Deputies also allegedly found a .22-caliber rifle and a .223-caliber rifle, as well as a cache of ammunition.

Deusenberry was convicted of attempted murder and malicious wounding in 1995, which prohibits him from owning guns, Crosier said. Deusenberry also was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Deusenberry was in the South Central Regional Jail on Tuesday in lieu of $100,000 bail.
