Jurors today acquitted a 21-year-old man of the most serious charges he faced in a Hartford homicide.

Traistyn George’s defense attorney Walter Hussey says his client was relieved.

“It was actualy a giant melee at a party,  The state had to rely upon one witness who alleged to have seen everything, and he really was not credible,” Hussey said.

George was cleared of murder, manslaughter, and assault.

Jurors convicted him of carrying a dangerous weapon in the February, 2012 stabbing of Kevin Rodriguez.

George remains in custody, awaiting sentencing on the felony weapon charge.  Sentencing is August 5.
