For the past two and a half years, a first-degree murder case has worked its way through the courts in Charleston. A 15-year-old boy, James Means, was shot and killed in the city’s East End back in 2016.

An older white man named William Pulliam is charged with the shooting. Pulliam’s trial was scheduled to start this week, but instead, the Means family learned there’s a new twist in the case.

Trey Kay has been following the case, and in this episode, he and Lacie Pierson of the Charleston Gazette talk with members of the Means family about their frustration with the slow prosecution process.
