The trial for a North Charleston man accused of murder ended this week without a verdict.

A judge granted defense attorney Alex Apostolou's motion for a mistrial on Wednesday, said Edward Corvey, the prosecutor on the case.

Apostolou represents Leandra Lamont Bright, a 32-year-old Gwinnett Street resident accused of fatally shooting a man during an argument in 2016.

The 9th Circuit Solicitor's Office elaborated on the reason for the mistrial saying in a statement there were "issues which developed between the defendant and his attorney during the trial."

Prosecutors plan to reschedule the trial for a future date, the statement said.

According to affidavits and a witness statement, Bright fatally shot Arthur Lee Myers during an argument on Taylor Street on March 30, 2016.

The argument lasted for about half an hour before Myers told Bright he didn't want to argue anymore and got back in his Buick Enclave.

Bright came up to the driver's side window and opened fire, hitting him several times in the left side.

Meyers got out and returned fire, despite his injuries, before he climbed back in the SUV and drove toward Rivers Avenue where he crashed and was found dead.
