BECKLEY -

A man accused of shooting up an apartment complex in Raleigh County will soon be headed for prison.

Raymond Stoumile, 26, of Beckley opened fire while he was leaving the Hager Street Apartments with AK-47 assault rifle.  It happened in the early morning hours on Dec. 9, 2012. Stoumile was indicted in May on charges of Wanton Endangerment, Being a Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Shooting near a Dwelling, and Carrying a Deadly Weapon with License or Authorization.

Jury selection in the trial began on Monday morning, but Stoumile chose to plead guilty to the indictment while lawyers were selecting the panel.  Stoumile could get up to 15 years in prison on the charges.
