Clifford M. Scheid

Clifford Miles Scheid (b. June 22, 1970) is a murderer and marijuana enthusiast.

Scheid, a schizophrenic, was living at the home of his grandmother, Lois G. Hampton, at 4504 Carrico Drive in Annandale when he beat the 75-year-old woman to death with a beer bottle on February 25, 1999 after she yelled at him for leaving it out.[1]

Scheid told several different lies to Fairfax County Police Detective Steve Shillingford of how he'd discovered his grandmother's corpse, at one point mentioning he'd smoked a large amount of marijuana upon discovering her dead in the basement.[2]

Following a three-day trial, Scheid was convicted of first-degree murder on December 3, 1999, and March 10, 2000, Judge Robert W. Wooldridge, Jr. sentenced Scheid to 35 years in prison.[2]

Scheid is currently at the Buckingham Correctional Center in Dillwyn, Virginia. He will be released on June 12, 2031.
