Bryan Kuang-Ming Welsh faces a 25-day trail early next year in the shooting deaths ofMala Manwani and her adult son, Rishi Manwani in Aldie.
Authorities found their bodies in their Tomey Court home on Jan. 31, 2018.
A Loudoun grand jury last month indicted the 38-year-old Locust Grove man ontwo counts of first-degree murder and two counts of using a firearm in the commission of a felony.He was arraigned Monday morning in Loudoun County Circuit Court,
Initially, Welsh was charged with murder in the case in March 2018. But he was released that August just before a preliminary hearing in Loudoun District Court. At that time, prosecutors dropped the charges after a ballistics report showed that nine bullets found at the crime scene did not match the gun found in Welsh’s possession.
However,Welsh remained the central suspect in the killings. Investigators believe the crime was drug related and that the firearm had been altered after the shootings.
The trial is scheduled to begin March 2.
