SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A man was found not guilty Monday at his second vehicular homicide trial in Spokane.

KXLY reports (https://bit.ly/1s2jq1n) the jury took less than four hours to reach a decision after the four-week trial of Jon Strine.

Prosecutors said he was driving drunk when he collided with a motorcycle in 2009, killing a woman and leaving her husband paralyzed. The defense lawyer said Strine had been drinking but was not impaired to the extent he caused the crash.

A jury also found Strine not guilty in 2011, but a mistrial was declared and another trial ordered.
