NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - After charges against an initial suspect were withdrawn last year, another suspect was indicted in the 2010 murder of a beloved Norfolk barber Wednesday morning.
A Norfolk Grand Jury indicted 36-year-old Bernard Alexander Kearney on 19 felony charges related to the death of Henry B. McIntosh: one count first degree murder, three counts attempted robbery, five counts robbery, one count possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and nine counts use of a firearm in commission of a felony.
Police say 86-year-old McIntosh was shot April 17, 2010 during a robbery at Square Deal Barber Shop on Church Street. He died the next day at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.
McIntosh owned and ran the shop for more than 50 years. Employee Ivan Boyd remembered being on the floor next to him that night.
"He shot him. Mr. Mac was standing, trying to get to the drawer to get his gun out. I was destroyed. I was really hurt," Boyd said.
10 On Your Side showed Boyd a photograph of Kearney for the first time Thursday. Boyd said the man looked familiar.
"He had a beard and sunglasses on, and a hat. Now that beard do favor him. We thought it was a fake beard," Boyd said.
Thursday, Kearney declined to talk to 10 On Your Side in person. He was already in a Virginia Beach jail when he was indicted, charged with an armed robbery charge the same month as the McIntosh murder. Future court hearings will be scheduled once Kearney is assigned a defense attorney for the Norfolk charges.
29-year-old Dahson Danata Iraldo was charged in McIntosh's murder in July of last year, after being arrested on unrelated charges and then interviewed about McIntosh's death. However, he was exonerated when charges against him were nolle prosequi during a hearing in October because of insufficient evidence.
Iraldo's lawyer, S.W. Dawson issued this statement Thursday:
"Mr. Iraldo is relieved that the Commonwealth no longer considers him a suspect in this case. Mr. Iraldo further expects the Commonwealth to issue him a full and sincere apology for the pain and anguish its false accusations have caused him."
