A man accused of killing a woman inside of her home last June has been granted extra help in his case.

The Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office has charged 35-year-old Claude Delmus Jr. in the murder of 65-year-old Phyllis Henrietta Kline.

SHENANDOAH COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) -- A man accused of killing a woman inside of her home last June has been granted extra help in his case.

Claude Shafer Jr. has been granted a private investigator in the case because he faces a capital murder charge, meaning he could face the death penalty, if convicted.

Shafer can use up to $7,500 on the investigator, according to the commonwealth attorney's office, which said this is normal in a case like this.

He also has two attorneys.

This case dates back to last June when investigators say Shafer killed Phyliss Kline at her home in Edinburg.

Shafer will be back in court on July 3 at 2 p.m.
