Family Of Victim In Bass Webb Murder Case Wants Justice

Family Of Victim In Bass Webb Murder Case Wants Justice

The case of Bryia Runiewicz's murder should have come to a close with the sentencing of Bass Webb. Instead, he asked to withdraw his guilty plea.
Bass Webb was supposed to be sentenced at the Pendleton County Judicial Center Wednesday.

Instead, he asked to withdraw his guilty plea.

Bryia Runiewicz, a mother of two, was killed in 2009 in Harrison County.

Her ex-boyfriend, Webb, was accused and pleaded guilty to killing her on July 18th of this year.

Today, he asked to withdraw that plea...and go to trial.

Dora Clair, Runiewicz's mother, was hoping that he would take the plea.

She felt the family didn't get justice with this request.  She wanted to see him go to prison.

The victim's brother, Scott Darr, wants something else.

"I want him to be on death row. That's where he belongs," he said.

Either way, Clair says the family will continue sticking together.

Webb's next court date is September 19th--that's when they'll decide if his plea withdrawal will go through.

If Webb had been sentenced, he'd have gone to prison for 50 years.

That would have been on top of a separate 50-year sentence for trying to run over a pre-trial officer and a deputy sheriff outside the Bourbon County Jail in 2009.

He's also accused of murder in the death of another former girlfriend, Sabrina Vaughn, in Montgomery County. 

And there's been no disposition of the case in which Webb spat in the face of a judge during a hearing three years ago.
