WRENTHAM, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts man who was charged with a fatal stabbing at a motel has been acquitted of murder and assault with a deadly weapon charges.

The Enterprise of Brockton (https://bit.ly/1HpTN5Q ) reports that a Brockton Superior Court jury last week acquitted 24-year-old Charles DeJesus, of Wrentham, after a three week trial.

DeJesus pleaded not guilty last year in the death of 31-year-old Raymond Sanfilippo. Authorities alleged that DeJesus stabbed Sanfilippo twice in the head at a Kingston motel in a dispute over a woman.

DeJesus’s lawyer said there was a strong indication that he may have acted in self-defense.
