JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - WLBT has this update on a mother's fight for justice in the death of her 27-year-old son.

Broderick Dixon who grew up in Jackson was gunned down May 22, 2009.

23-year-old Chevis Finley an off-duty Brighton, Alabama police officer was indicted and charged with murder.

Deborah Dixon said Thursday so far the trial for Finley has been continued several times.  It is set to begin in November.

Finley remains free on bond.
