FRESNO - Police in Central California say a man who was released from jail after a jury mistakenly signed a not-guilty verdict was killed hours later.
Fresno police Sgt. James Rios says Bobby Lee Pearson was stabbed to death early Thursday morning after going to a home to get some clothing and belongings. He apparently got into a fight with his sister's boyfriend, who Rios says then stabbed him.
The two apparently had a long history of problems. The boyfriend's name has not been released.
A jury on Wednesday was hung and could not reach a verdict in a burglary case against Pearson, but mistakenly signed a not-guilty form. By the time the confusion came to light, the judge said it was too late, and he had no choice but to release Pearson.
