Two men are standing trial this week for a deadly shooting that happened in the parking lot of a K&W in North Myrtle Beach.

Nicolas McIver, 22, and Terrell Freeman, 31, are both facing murder charges for the death of 29-year-old Amanda Fisher.

Opening statements were given for the murder trial Monday afternoon and court will resume at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

Fisher was shot to death in July of 2016 while sitting in a car in the parking lot of the K&W Cafeteria off of Highway 17 North, according to the Horry County Coroner's Office.

Police say they got a call at around 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 9, 2016, that a woman had been shot and was lying in the middle of the parking lot. The North Myrtle Beach police chief said it appeared that she was shot inside the car and then pushed out.

Both men were taken into custody by Charlotte police a few days after the murder.

Freeman was picked up by police for having violated parole since he traveled from North Carolina to South Carolina, North Myrtle Beach spokesman Pat Dowling said.

McIver was picked up by police for the burning of Fisher’s car, and possession of a stolen motor vehicle, Dowling said.

Both men are standing trial on charges of murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, kidnapping and grand larceny, according to a court docket.
