CA: More on Christiansen Shooting
After a two week long trial in Solano County Superior Court, a man facing a murder charge in a Vallejo woman’s death was found not guilty last Thursday by a jury and has now been released from custody after more than two years in county jail.
Michael David Wilson, 49, was accused in the shooting death of 57-year-old Lillie Mae Christiansen, who was shot and killed in July 2014 on the front porch of her friend’s apartment along Mare Island Way in Vallejo. Wilson’s attorney argued that her client acted in self defense and that proved to be enough to sway the jury in favor of the man’s innocence. Wilson was released from Solano County Jail on Thursday following his acquittal.
