The Church Hill man indicted earlier this month for the shooting death of his wife was formally arraigned in Criminal Court Thursday morning.

Bryan Lawson, 34, appeared before a judge in Rogersville after a grand jury indicted him for the first-degree murder of Beth Lawson, 40, that occurred in January.

Police said video surveillance cameras inside the home captured the shooting that Bryan Lawson says was done in self-defense. He is scheduled to return to court on Dec. 8.
