The Kershaw County Grand Jury returned a no-bill on charges of voluntary manslaughter against Jimmy Joe Methe, the 49-year-old east Camden man arrested a month ago for fatally shooting 17-year-old Brandon Scott Spencer during what appeared to be an attempt to break into one of Methe’s vehicles. A no-bill means the grand jury declined to indict Methe, effectively dropping the charge. Fifth Circuit Solicitor’s Office Director of Communications Nicole Holland confirmed the grand jury’s decision late Thursday afternoon, but said Solicitor Dan Johnson had no comment at the time.
