We don't expect too much new information released Wednesday as the investigation into the altercation between Creigh Deeds and his son Gus continues. The fight left the Senator with serious stab wounds and his son the victim of an apparent fatal self-inflicted gun shot wound.
State Police said they will not conduct any press briefings today, but said that an autopsy on Gus Deeds's body is scheduled for today.
Wednesday afternoon The Times-Dispatch's Jim Nolan reported that the stabbing took place outside of the Deeds home and the autopsy results should be revealed sometime today.
