It's been a day of threats, tears, and increased security at the Cabell County Courthouse. The men accused of burning a woman by throwing gasoline were in court.

Colt Pack and Charles Marshall are the suspects.

Sheriff’s deputies say both suspects men were verbally threatened by other inmates on the ride down from jail this morning because of anger about what the suspects allegedly did.

No one was charged in connection with the threats, but deputies increased protection for the men because of the tense atmosphere.

The men are charged with the malicious wounding of Mary Ann Parker.

Parker was in the hospital for 10 days because of burns to her face and upper body.

Colt Pack apologized today for what happened to Parker and said he did not intent to burn Parker.

Pack says he and Marshall were robbed at beaten at the club on June 30th, and returned to confront the people responsible for that attack.

Parker was outside the courthouse to show the men her burned faced and body.

Pack’s case was continued today, and Marshall waived his right to a preliminary hearing, meaning a grand jury will now decide if there’s enough evidence to send the case to trial.
