Murder charge elevated in domestic violence case

Posted on Monday, November 20, 2017 at 5:00 am

A revised charge of first-degree murder was filed against Gregory Veres, the man accused of striking his girlfriend while driving near the Blue Ridge Shores subdivision.

The new charge, which replaces the initial filing of second-degree murder, implies that prosecutors believe Veres, 30, had a plan to kill Dawn Meade before he hit her with his vehicle on Sept. 22. First-degree murder carries a potential sentence of life in prison.

The Louisa County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office also presented a charge against Veres of felony hit and run. He now faces three charges, including violation of a protective order that barred him from contact with Meade.
