Man charged with murder after fatal accident is found not guilty

A man charged with murder after a car accident that killed an eastern Kentucky teen is found not guilty.

Russell Gray was accused of driving under the influence in Clay County in January, 2008 when he hit a truck driven by Eugene Scotty Henson.

Henson was seriously injured and his passenger, 17-year-old Brandi Napier died in the crash.

Officials say a jury deliberated a little more than an hour before returning the not guilty verdict late Thursday afternoon.

The trial began Monday.
