WTOP: 2 Acquitted in Robinson Murder
WTOP reports that a jury has acquitted twin brothers in the 2008 murder of 13 year old Alonzo Robinson. Joshua and Christian Benton, who did not know Robinson, stood accused of choosing him at random and shooting him down in front of his mother. Jury deliberations continue over the fate of the three other defendants in the joint conspiracy trial. The government's key witness has a long history of drug abuse, has sometimes heard voices, and admitted to using PCP the night of the murder. He also admitted to involvement in other separate murders.
