An ill juror has forced a mistrial in a Charleston murder case.
Brandon Gray was on trial for first degree murder. Today a juror became ill and there was no alternate juror in the case, so the mistrial was declared.
The trial was expected to be quick, but now will have to start all over again.
Prosecutors contended Gray murdered Timothy Thompson on First Avenue in Charleston back in June. They say the killing was over a drug debt. But the defense argued there was little evidence connecting Gray to the murder.
