OH: Andre Jackson found Not Guilty without Jury Trial

CLEVELAND, Ohio - A 52-year-old man who fatally shot his neighbor after a front-yard fight about leaves and debris was found not guilty Wednesday by a Cuyahoga Common Pleas Court judge.

Andre Jackson of Bedford Heights was charged with murder in the death of Michael Davis. What started as an altercation about debris in the front yard ultimately ended up in a situation where - defense attorneys argued - Jackson felt threatened, and had no choice but to shoot.

Defense attorney Andy Petropouleas said the front yard fight was just the latest in a string of confrontations. Petropouleas described Davis as a neighborhood bully with a long history of causing trouble on what is otherwise a sleepy suburban street.
