Jury acquits in 2010 Dorchester pot murder case

A Suffolk Superior Court jury yesterday found Luis Pimentel, 20, not guilty for the shooting death of a man inside the man's Samoset Street apartment on Dec. 10, 2010, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.

The jury did not buy prosecutors' arguments that Pimentel shot Victor Brookens, 54, to death over the marijuana Pimentel allegedly though Brookens was keeping in his apartment.
