North Charleston man gets 30 years in shooting death

CHARLESTON (AP) — A North Charleston man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison after being convicted in the shooting death of a man nearly two years ago.

Multiple media outlets reported that jurors deliberated more than 15 hours before finding 22-year-old Jalann Lee Williams guilty of murder and possession of a gun.

Twenty-one-year-old Akeen Jamal Ladson of North Charleston was found dead Jan. 31, 2014, in an SUV.

Investigators said Williams and 33-year-old Robert Mitchell II of Hanahan were involved in a drug transaction with Ladson when he was killed.

Mitchell testified against Williams during the trial.

Williams said the shooting was an accident.
