A Battleford jury found Gerald Stanley not guilty after deliberating for roughly 13 hours.
Stanley, 56, was charged with second-degree murder in connection with the shooting death of 22-year-old Colten Boushie. His high-profile trial began Jan. 29 at the Battleford Court of Queen’s Bench.
There was screaming and shouting heard in the courtroom when the jury foreman read the verdict. Deputies rushed Stanley and the jury out rear entrances, and court was immediately closed.
