SAN ANTONIO – A jury reached a verdict of not guilty late Monday night in the murder trial of William Perkins.
Perkins was on trial for the April 2017 fatal shooting of 34-year-old Jonathan Ashford, the husband of Perkins’ mistress.
Perkins admitted to firing six shots, claiming self-defense. Prosecutors, however, called it murder, saying there was no evidence Ashford ever fired a weapon.
The jury, however, found Perkins not guilty on a murder charge.
Perkins still faces a charge of felon in possession.
