Man acquitted of murder

A man accused of murder was acquitted Wednesday.

The acquittal made Anton Wright, 37, a free man, after a jury cleared him of murder.

Wright was accused of fatally stabbing 22-year-old Theron Armbrister, after prosecutors alleged they got into a fight at a party in the Kemp Road area 10 years ago.

Jurors found him not guilty of murder by an 8-4 count last evening.

In order for someone to be convicted of murder, the count must be unanimous.
