A Jefferson County jury has returned a not guilty verdict in the Josh Young murder trial.
The six-day trial ended Friday with Young, 17, being acquitted on charges of murder and tampering with physical evidence.
Young was accused of beating his stepbrother, 14-year-old Trey Zwicker, to death, in 2011.
Young’s father Joshua Gouker pleaded guilty to the murder and was sentenced to life in prison.
Zwicker’s body was found in a ditch near Liberty High School, not far from his home.
