Channel 9 reporter Blake Hanson talked to Jonathan Ferrell’s family Friday morning shortly after the decision was announced to not retry Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer Randall “Wes” Kerrick in the 2013 shooting death of Ferrell.
Jonathan’s mother, Georgia, said she found out when she got a call Friday morning from prosecutor Teresa Postel with the North Carolina Attorney General’s Office.
Georgia Ferrell said prosecutors told her Attorney General Roy Cooper had looked over everything after a mistrial was declared last week when the acquittal-leaning jury deadlocked and he determined they would not have a retrial.
Georgia Ferrell was told presecutors didn’t think they they could get any other result.
