Assistant U.S. Attorney Glenn Kirschner called the judge’s verdict thoughtful and well-reasoned.
“We respect and accept the judge’s verdict,” he said. “Everybody knew this was a challenging investigation and prosecution.”
Prosecutors had hoped to get justice for Mr. Wone’s parents and wife, Mr. Kirschner said, but the case will remain open so they can pursue charges in the slaying if new evidence is found.
