Jury finds Luis Arroyo not guilty in capital murder retrial
SAN ANTONIO – After 10 hours of deliberation, a jury on Tuesday found Luis Arroyo not guilty on two murder charges.
Arroyo was on trial for the murders of Quikether Jackson and Rodney Spring -- killings police say stemmed from an argument over a pack of cigarettes. The first trial resulted in a mistrial.

Arroyo is no stranger to the courtroom as he had already been sentenced to 99 years in prison for escaping from the Bexar County Jail.
The jury began deliberating around 2 p.m. Friday.
Prosecutors and the defense spent much of Friday discussing the lack of evidence.
