A Hinds County jury has acquitted 19-year-old Damion Lewis of murder charges in the 2006 slaying of his neighbor.
The verdict was handed down Thursday.
Lewis was accused of killing 34-year-old Jonathan Harris, whose body was found the night of Jan. 18, 2006 by a Jackson police officer on patrol.
The body was wrapped in a blanket behind the Rebelwood Apartments in south Jackson. Harris had been shot once in the head.
Defense attorneys argued Harris was shot during a struggle between the two men.
Prosecutors say Lewis killed Harris during an attempted robbery.
