On Monday the jury trial in the civil wrongful death lawsuit of Shirley Carter was scheduled to begin.

Instead the trial was continued with a scheduling conference set for Friday, June 30th at 11 a.m. Shirley Carter was shot and killed inside her home near Lacona on the morning of June 19th, 2015. To date, no arrests have been made in the homicide. In January of 2016 the late husband of Carter, Bill G. Carter, brought the lawsuit against his son Jason Carter, who he blames for the shooting death of his wife Shirley. In March of 2017 a Marion County Judge ruled to deny the motion of a summary judgement for the lawsuit which sent the case to a jury trial.
