CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - A man accused of stabbing a woman in Chesterfield County just made an appearance before a judge.

A Chesterfield police officer testified that Haywood Hendricks, 45, admitted to family members to killing 56-year old Joyce Mann on April 30.

Two days later, Hendricks was involved in a standoff with Richmond police where he was shot multiple times after refusing to put down his gun.

Investigators say they found the murder weapon inside a Richmond home.

Hendricks could be indicted when his case goes before a grand jury.
