A Suffolk Superior Court jury today found Lavonrence Perkins, 23, of Mattapan, not guilty for the shooting murder of Cordell McAfee at Dorchester Avenue and Roseland Street on May 7, 2010, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
Prosecutors had alleged that Perkins ran up to a porch where McAfee was sitting with relatives and shot him.
This was Perkins' second trial for the murder; the first, in 2012, ended with a hung jury for both him and Adam Simkins, also charged with murder. The DA's office reports Simkins is awaiting his own new trial for the murder.
