NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) _ A Meriden man was found not guilty of all charges against him, including murder, by a 12-member jury Friday.

The Meriden Record-Journal reports that Jonathon Gibbs was released from prison a short time after the decision came down at New Britain Superior Court.

He was on trial in the June 2013 killing of 18-year-old New Britain teen Issaac Smith. It was apparently a sneaker sale in New Britain that went wrong.

Gibbs was charged with murder as well as lesser charges and was found not guilty on all charges. He’s been in jail since his arrest last year.
