BURGAW, NC (StarNews) — A hearing to preserve the testimony of a witness in a pending murder trial was continued Thursday when the witness failed to appear in court.
Nashid Porter, 37, is charged in the July 2012 killing of Brian Grant in Creekwood.
In November, Porter was charged in Duplin County in the killing of Obediah Hester, a state’s witness in the murder case against Porter. In April, another witness who could put Porter at the scene of Grant’s death, died of natural causes.
