Americus- An Americus Man accused of murder us found not guilty on all counts. Thirty four year old Brian Lee Morgan was accused of murder in the strangulation death of 57 year old Vivian Wright in this home in Americus in March of 2004. He's been jailed ever since.

Late Friday night the jury found Morgan not guilty of murder, felony murder, aggravated battery, and theft of a motor vehicle. Morgan's attorney William Murray maintains his client was always innocent and says the two that worked at Sumter Regional Hospital together and were friends.

"He was not a stranger to her nor was she a stranger to him and I think things like that caused the jury to wonder whether or not he would have been the person that killed her," said Attorney William Murray of Americus.

Morgan was never a suspect in two other murders that happened nearly a month before Wrights murder. All of the murders remain unsolved.
