BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - The family of Jason Brady will soon celebrate another Thanksgiving without their baby brother. Brady was shot to death in Biloxi back in 2012. Louis Williams was accused of shooting Brady after an altercation at a home on Brasher Road. Williams was tried for murder in 2015, the result, a hung jury.
Williams was tried again last week this time the judge declared a mistrial.
"It's a difficult emotion to explain when you've been waiting four and half years for this. And with the evidence, it's kind of crazy to think it was that hard to be able to find him guilty," said Cory Meci.
Meci and his family went into the second trial with no expectations, but at one point began to feel optimistic.
"As the trial progressed and evidence came out, there was a lot more evidence in this trial than there was the first trial. It definitely looked a little more positive. We weren't expecting the outcome that came out," said Meci.
Meci is adamant about getting justice for his brother, but they want to move forward with caution.
"Right now it is kind of too much emotion. We are kind of worried about trying to push for another trial. By the third, it's a third mistrial then there's nothing they can do. And as far as the DA goes, they said that they're not going to try it again," said Meci.
According to District Attorney Joel Smith, during the trial, witnesses testified that Williams was the individual who shot and killed Brady during a dispute involving illegal narcotics.
