PINEVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A jury in southwest Missouri has found a 30-year-old man innocent in a 2013 stabbing death.

Boyd Marcum was acquitted Thursday of second-degree murder charges in the death of 29-year-old Kevin Anderson. Marcum was also found innocent of voluntary and involuntary manslaughter.
