Post Master Dead
(2008-07-19)
(WOUB) - A West Virginia postal worker who was shot at a Moundsville area post office yesterday has died from her wounds.

35-year-old Lua Wolverton was pronounced dead last night at Ruby Memorial Hospital.

Wolverton was the Post Master for the small community of Dallas.

Police have arrested 39-year-old Todd Dolin, who was found in Zanesville, Ohio.

They plan to charge him with 1st degree murder in Wolverton's death.

Sheriff John Gruzinskas said Wolverton was shot twice at work, but was able to describe her attacker in a 911 call to police.

Gruzinskas said Wolverton and Dolin had a "familiar relationship," but did not elaborate.

West Virginia State Police say Dolin will be charged in Ohio and they will seek his extradition.
