CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – An affidavit filed in the Sidney Moorer kidnapping case has requested a witness attend the Court of General Sessions starting Aug. 29 and last for approximately 12 days.

According to the affidavit filed July 13, Stephen Schiraldi was asked to be in court during the period of Aug. 29 through Sept. 9.

Schiraldi previously testified in a June trial regarding the kidnapping charge against Moorer, who is accused in connection with the December 2013 disappearance of Heather Elvis.

The witness testified during that trial he was the last person to report seeing Elvis before her disappearance.

Schiraldi detailed a date he and Elvis went on on the evening of Dec. 17, 2013, which included dinner at a Myrtle Beach restaurant and him teaching her how to drive a stick shift.

He said he called, texted and messaged Elvis on Facebook later the next day, but never heard back.

Twelve jurors could not reach a unanimous verdict in Moorer’s case, leading to a hung jury and, ultimately, a mistrial.

A new trial date for Moorer has not been formally scheduled.
