In a March 15, 2011 photo, Massey Energy Security Chief Hughie Elbert Stover, center, and his wife, left, are swamped by members of the media as they leave the Federal courthouse in Beckley after. Stover, 59, is charged with lying to federal investigators and ordering another Massey employee to dispose of documents relating to security at the Upper Big Branch mine. Stover is the first person facing criminal charges in connection with last April's explosion that killed 29 miners. The explosion was the deadliest at a U.S. coal mine since 1970. less
