On Friday, Hall’s bail was set at $2 million in cash only.

Hall is expected to be in court at the end of August. His trial is tentatively scheduled to begin on October 19.

“Just a lot of hurt, you know, a lot of pain and just knowing what people went through because of this act,” Roush’s cousin Jason Simpkins said of his emotions seeing Hall in court. “It’s really just heartbreaking, honestly.”

On Easter Sunday, Meigs County Sheriff’s Deputies were called to Legion Terrace Road where they found Kane Roush, 25, shot multiple times, lying near an apartment complex near his home.

Roush was a well-known Mason County athlete and helped bring the first state title back to Wahama High School in 2012.

“The community support has been amazing,” Simpkins said. “I just see the signs that everyone has posted about him, talking about him. I really don’t know a single person who didn’t like it. He was a wonderful person.

Last week, Hall was arrested by US Marshals and Charleston police.

The CPD Special Law Enforcement Unit assisted in the arrest, which occurred in the 800 block of Kanawha Boulevard East.
