MONTROSE, W.Va. — A Randolph County man was arrested for allegedly trying to murder a woman by giving her drugs.

Brian Broseker, of Montrose is in custody on charges of attempted murder, kidnapping, retaliation against a witness and conspiracy after he allegedly gave a woman a line of methamphetamine and held her against her will. According to the West Virginia State Police, Broseker gave the drugs a woman because she was a “rat” and then told her she would die within two hours after taking it.

According to troopers who responded to the incident, Broseker and three individuals allegedly told the woman that knew she was a witness in a case and showed her paperwork with her name on it. The group then discussed a possible disposal spot for the woman after she would die from an overdose, all the while holding her in a chair against her will.

The woman also told troopers that she escaped custody after Broseker started to “nod out” while holding her down. After she left his residence, the woman ran to a neighbor’s house where she called 911.

Broseker is currently in Tygart Valley Regional Jail with no bond currently set.
