Mistrial Declared In Virginia Homicide Case

The jury could not agree on a verdict, so the case has ended.


It doesn't look like the family of Nathan Evans is going to be receiving justice. At least not right now.

The jury was trying to make a decision in regard to the death of a sophomore football player at William & Mary.

Evans was found shot on a sidewalk on the 800 block of West 43rd Street on March 21, 2019.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Shortly after the event, the campus helped honor him by organizing a gathering in Nathan Evans' name.

Two people, one named Bryant, and the other named Kri'Shawn D. Beamon were charged in connection to the incident.

Bryant was facing charges for first-degree murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

Beamon was charged with second-degree murder, robbery, and two counts of use of the firearm in the commission of a felony.

Keith Bryant Jr. did not learn his charges until four years after the incident.

Search warrants referred to the incident that led to Evans' death a "drug transaction."

Evans was killed far too young, as anyone who's only 19 does NOT deserve to die.

Nathan Evans was very focused on his goal of eventually playing in the NFL.

It was a long shot, yes, given that he wasn't exactly at a football powerhouse, but Evans was determined to do it.

Now he'll never get the chance.

What do you think about this story?

Do you think that the judge was right to declare a mistrial?

Friends and family of Evans might be feeling like they would have liked to see a decision one way or the other to help with closure over the death of Nathan Evans.

At least right now, they're not going to get it.
