FAIRMONT — A Marion County jury found William Michael Horton Jr. not guilty on two counts of nighttime burglary and two counts of nighttime robbery.

The verdict was handed down close to 5 p.m. Friday, after the jury had deliberated since 9 a.m.

These were the last charges against Horton in a 2010 attempted robbery that ended with the death of one of the participants, the guilty plea of a juvenile and Horton’s own conviction of conspiracy to commit a felony from a December 2011 rial.
