Almost a year ago, 34 year old Trey Wright was shot to death in a northwest Jackson neighborhood. Sixteen- year-old Mark Cassidy was charged with the murder, but almost a year later he is out of jail on a $50,000 bond.
The victim's father, Warren Wright, met with the district attorney's office Tuesday, trying to find out why Cassidy is yet to come to trial.
"The problem is that we can't seem to get any resolution. He has been indicted on a murder charge, he is back out on bond. And when they indicted him, they picked him up again, on drug charges. He has gotten out of jail for that as well and we are very frustrated," said Wright.
"We think he should be picked up immediately and put in jail until the trial," Wright added. "My whole family is absolutely sick. We feel like we are just getting the run around. You know, maybe my case isn't as important as others, but that's what we feel."
District Attorney Robert Schuler Smith says a year is not an inordinate amount of time for a case not to come to trial.
He says the man charged will be tried as an adult and he thinks the trial will come in the next few months.
