Friends and family of both the shooter, 20-year-old Shameen Coker, and the victim, James Dillard, gathered outside the courtroom today after a long day of testimony. Coker is charged with murder, armed robbery, and kidnapping in connection with the death of Dillard.
Police say Coker, along with 20-year-old Ajanae Roach, asked Dillard for a ride in his truck, then shot him execution-style, in May of 2000. The body was found days later. Now, the solicitor's office says it's doing what it can to bring justice.
"I feel strongly that we have presented the case as well as it can be presented," said solicitor Randolph Murdaugh.
The trial for Coker is expected to end tomorrow. However, Ajanae Roach has not yet been to trial.
