AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) - Augusta County Commonwealth’s Attorney, Tim Martin, has been appointed by the Richmond Circuit Court to determine if Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney’s removal of confederate monuments needs to be investigated.

Richmond councilwoman, Kim Gray, called for an investigation last month after learning the contract to remove the confederate monuments was awarded to one of Mayor Stoney’s donors.

Richmond’s top prosecutor, Collette McEachin, declined a request to investigate the removal, noting Devon Henry had donated to her husband Donald McEachin’s campaign in 2011.

Henry owns Team Henry Enterprises, which has been linked to NAH LLC, the company that was contracted to remove the statues.
