Followup SC: George Jacob Shine found Justifed in Fatal Shooting of Joseph Frey

After facing a murder charge for three years, 34-year-old George Jacob Shine was found not guilty by reason of self-defense in general sessions court at the Sumter County Judicial Center Monday.

Shine, a Florence native, was on trial for the fatal shooting death of Joseph Frey, 70, who was reportedly shot twice during an argument at a residence off Narrow Paved Road on Nov. 17, 2015.

While responding to an emergency call, a deputy from the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office spoke to Shine and his brother, Travis Jones, who said Shine had been shot in the chest by Frey.

Shine also said he shot Frey twice with a rifle after the firearm was first used by Frey to shoot him, according to an incident report.
