Some of the details of the night of Aug. 24 and the early morning hours of Aug. 25, 2012 are a bit hazy. Not because it has been almost two years, but because no one really wanted to get involved.
The two facts of the murder trial being presented during this term of General Session court in Barnwell are that Nathan Johnson lost his life in the early morning hours of Aug. 25, 2012 and three days later, Aug. 28, Roland Cromwell Jr. was arrested for his murder.
The first witness took the stand just before 5 p.m. Monday in the trial.

The past year since her breast cancer diagnosis has been a "nightmare" for Sherry Kinard, but the American Cancer Society has helped her through it.
"They have been very beneficial to me throughout my journey," said Kinard of the services offered by the ACS.
That's why Kinard, this year's grand marshal for the survivor's lap at Barnwell County Relay for Life, encourages the whole community to come out Friday night to raise money for cancer research. The event is from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. at Veterans Park on Hwy. 278 in Barnwell.
