Grand Jury Delay Decision on Former Deputy Long
By Peter Biello
Wilmington, NC – The New Hanover County Grand Jury will reconvene July 11th to continue its deliberation of whether to indict former New Hanover County deputy Christopher Long.
The parents of Peyton Strickland, along with former deputy Christopher Long, attorneys for both sides and members of the media waited to find that the grand jury still did not make a decision. During the wait, Strickland's father often glared at Long.
Eighteen-year-old Peyton Strickland died last December after Long fired shots into the door while helping to serve a warrant in connection with a Playstation 3 robbery. The grand jury is expected to wrap up its deliberations Wednesday.
