Grand jury declines to indict man accused in fatal stabbing of panhandler in Providence

By Brian Amaral
PROVIDENCE — A grand jury last week declined to indict a man accused of murder in the fatal stabbing of a panhandler on North Main Street in June, ending the case against him.
Gary McConville, 42, was charged with murder in the death of Antonio Bryant, 51, on North Main Street by Cypress Street.

But a grand jury last week issued a no true bill, meaning it did not find probable cause that murder or any other crime had been committed, according to McConville’s lawyer, who had argued self-defense in earlier proceedings.

Grand jury proceedings are secret, but the panel would have weighed evidence presented by state prosecutors in the case. Even defense lawyers don’t attend grand jury proceedings, only prosecutors.

Some evidence had come out at a bail hearing before a judge. After the bail hearing, McConville was allowed to be released without posting any money, meaning the judge didn’t think proof of guilt was evident.

McConville’s lawyer had argued that this was a crystal-clear case of self-defense: Contrary to initial reports that McConville had approached Bryant, Bryant had actually crossed the street and confronted McConville, Craig V. Montecalvo said.

“He’s relieved, but he still feels awful about the entire incident and wishes it didn’t have to happen,” Montecalvo said.

Man identified in fatal Cherokee County shooting

By Keri Thornton
An area man was shot to death Tuesday night by a woman who says she was defending herself.

Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies responded to a shooting report on West Clyde Maher Road Tuesday night. A woman called 911 and told dispatchers she had shot a burglar. When deputies arrived, they found Josh Montgomery lying dead in the driveway.

Undersheriff Jason Chennault confirmed that Montgomery was dead from two gunshot wounds.

Ginger Snow told deputies a man had started banging on the doors and windows at her residence. She didn’t know who the man was and told him to leave. She said he “backed off” into a yard but then returned to her house, this time even more aggressive.

Snow said she armed herself with a gun and opened the door. She said when the man threatened to kill her, she fired shots into the air to scare him. She said the man started to come at her and she fired at least two shots, killing him.

    Holy Shit! I’m not even going to try to type that name in the second story (on a touchscreen kindle).
    Instead, I’m going to call on Claw to do proper PMCS on the Whiz Wheel and spin a score on Deq-alphabet soup.

    Speaking of interesting names….. “Ginger Snow”…… good shootin’, darlin’. Although you did waste some ammunition at the beginning, you did achieve your goal at the end.

    Bum tried a stick up and got stuck. Good riddance!

    Dequavious (sigh)… Found in the dog house, going to the big house. Your new line of work will be being Julio’s Bitch… Enjoy!

    Was Ginger a ginger? She did a good job getting fired up and into the dirtbag.

    Lubs these presentation case pics. God made some men big and some men small. Sam Colt made them all equal.

    Not sure why the lady in the last story would have opened the doggone door with someone acting that way…it was tactically and likely legally dumb too.

    • J.R. Johnson says:

      She was probably worried she might not see him properly through the opaque door and wanted to ensure the “well wisher” could clearly see her intent. On his realization that she was in fact serious, she was obliged to surrender two free bullets (although without the accompanying gunpowder or casing)!

  5. Ex-PH2 says:

    Dequavious: duh-quay-vee-us. Geezo Pete, what is it about these semi-literate baby mommas that they have to inflict names like that on their offshoots?

    What else can you do to really, really ruin someone’s life before it gets started? How about Dennis or Joe? Wasn’t there a baseball player named “Shoeless” Joe Jackson?

  6. That perp in Cherokee County should have told the young lady that he was only Joshing (kidding) after he stopped banging on the door and she told him to leave.
