A Sylvester man accused of murdering a Tifton teenager is found not guilty.

Twenty two-year-old Jeff Arnes Crutchfield admitted he shot Wayne Alexander after an argument at the Casino Lounge in Sylvester two years ago. But he said it was self defense.

The Tifton jury took just an hour to acquit Crutchfield of murder and voluntary manslaughter.

Two other men who were there that night were also charged with the murder, but the assistant district attorney offered them immunity for their testimony in the trial. He says now that Crutchfield has been acquitted, noone else will be prosecuted for Alexander's death.
