A Second Mistrial Declared in Charleston Murder Case
Another mistrial has been declared in a Charleston murder case that stems back to 2015. Jurors in the Tremaine Jackson case became deadlocked, and the defense made a motion for a mistrial. Eyewitness News reports the prosecution said they were unable to object so the judge declared the mistrial. Jackson is charged with murder and is accused of shooting and killing Bryan Rogers on Dec. 27, 2015 in an alley near Seventh Avenue and Rebecca Street over what police said was a drug theft. Juror misconduct was the reason for the first mistrail in September 2016. A hearing is coming up Monday to determine a date for a third trial.
