Following a four day trial, Dorien Meullion was found not guilty Thursday afternoon in Christian Circuit Court for the October, 2016 murder of Tarone Williams on East Ninth Street.
That’s according to court officials, who say the verdict was reached by the jury shortly after 4 p.m.
Meullion will remain incarcerated while he serves time on an eight-year sentence for felonies unrelated to the death of Williams.
He was convicted in 2017 of wanton endangerment, criminal mischief and tampering with evidence for a 2015 incident when he crashed his girlfriend’s car into a utility pole on Second Street and then fired three shots toward a bystander who was dialing 911.
One of the shots struck a home, but no one was injured.
