Sioux Falls, SD

 10/25/22 Sioux Falls Argus Leader:

A jury has decided, after days of hearing testimony and arguments, that a Sioux falls man was justified in killing of another man two years ago in self-defense.

Marcus Jerell Anderson, 34, was facing two counts of first-degree manslaughter, one count of aggravated assault and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

After the jury deliberated late into Monday night, their final verdict found Anderson was only guilty on the possession of a firearm with a prior felony conviction. Anderson was acquitted on his most serious charge, first-degree manslaughter, punishable by up to life in prison.
