The Grand Jury has refused to indict the elderly Roanoke man who shot and killed a 15-year old girl last week. Prosecutors sought a murder charge against 82-year Hallis (JAME-ison) Jamison, for the death of Charlotte Brown.
She had knocked on Jamison's door Tuesday night to return his keys after her cousins had been banging on the windows and doors. He allegedly fired the fatal shot through the front door. Though it's unusual, this may not be the end of the case. The prosecutor has various options, including presenting the case to another Grand Jury in April.

(( The judge warned everyone in court it would be graphic, and it was. On Monday prosecutors ended their case after they showed dozens of bloody pictures of Diane Whipple, the woman mauled to death by two dogs. DR. BOYD STEPHENS/MEDICAL EXAMINER) When you look at the injuries, they look terrible, they look terrible. But most of them are superficial injuries. The medical examiner testified that the dogs bit or clawed Whipple on every part of her body, except the soles of her feet and top of her head. He went over each of the 77 injuries, pointing out how the attacks on her neck are probably what killed her. STEPHENS: If it hadnt been for the injury to the larynx and jugular vein, I would have expected the trauma surgeons to save her life. Whipples mother left the courtroom right after the judges warning. And as the testimony continued, more people continued to leave. Defendant Marjorie Knoller put her head down and covered her eyes, while her husband Robert Noel watched the pictures and took notes. Prosecutors attacked Knollers claim that she tried to cover Whipple with her own body. KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE-NEWSOM/PROSECUTOR: If the jury believes that shes there on top of Diane as her story goes, then they have to ask themselves why doesnt she have any bites? Whipple was walking into her San Francisco apartment last year when the dogs attacked her. Knoller was holding the dogs, and has been charged with 2nd degree murder. Her husband was not home, and has been charged with manslaughter. )

But the Lowgators would go on an 11-OH run and leading the charge was Fred House. He hits a couple of three pointers in a row and it's 28-19 North Charleston.
The Dazzle's answer is former NBA forward Johnny Taylor who connects on this shot to cut North Charleston's lead to 5, 30-25 in the second.
The Lowgators would again go to the outside for some offense, the score was 42-34 Lowgators at the half. The Visititors still lead by 8 with about 2:30 to play.
