A man accused of second degree murder is free tonight after a jury finds him not guilty.

After about seven hours of deliberation a jury found Mack Sadler not guilty on all counts.

Sadler walked out of court a free man today.

The 58–year–old was on trial for second–degree murder and assault charges in the death of 32–year-old Douglas Bennett.

All along Sadler has maintained he acted in self-defense the night of the killing.

    Glad to here this also. Justice has been served. I'm sorry someone had to die, but they died of their own intent. Obviously Mr Bennett had no intention of chaning his ways, trouble is most likely still on his heels. Where ever he may be...
