Jury Finds Acre-Kendall Not Guilty

Local News

The Minnesota man accused of fatally stabbing another man last spring, has been acquitted of all charges.
A jury found 20-year old Levi Acre-Kendall not guilty of 2nd degree intentional homicide, and 1st and 2nd degree reckless homicide.
The stabbing happened in April along the St. Croix River after a confrontation. Acre-Kendall testified that he acted in self-defense when he stabbed 34-year old Peter Kelly to death. He also said Kelly pursued him and dragged him from his vehicle.
Kelly’s family says they are disappointed in the verdict and the system.
“My parents – they’re crushed. We’re all crushed. Our family will never be the same. And it will never be.”
Acre-Kendall was released from jail this afternoon. He still faces bail- jumping charges from this spring.
