Proceedings in the state’s trial against Justin Jermaine Johnson — who is facing many charges in connection with the April 6, 2011, shooting deaths of his 9-month-old son and the boy’s 59-year-old grandmother — have stalled as one of the jurors needed medical attention Friday afternoon.
The juror asked to be excused then fell ill in the hallway. An ambulance was called to the Clarendon County Administration building where the trial is being held.
Third Circuit Court Judge Jeffrey Young has called a recess in the trial until 9:30 a.m. Monday.
