The Murder Trial of Michael Bright won’t be held until August of this year.  Bright’s lawyer, Summerville Attorney Don Thompson requested the delay in order to give private investigators more time to gather information in defense of his client.

Thompson has repeatedly told the media that he believes his client is innocent of the charge of murdering Shaw Harris last  year.  According to Thompson, Harris was known to have made threats against Bright, and Thompson believes the shooting was in self-defense.
