Not Guilty Verdict in Murder Case — “An Arlington County jury Tuesday deliberated for only one hour before finding a 60-year-old man not guilty of hiring a violent felon to murder his fiancee, Andrea Cincotta, in her apartment in 1998. Three jurors said afterward that they questioned why Arlington prosecutors brought the case against James Christopher Johnson.” [Washington Post]

More on Local Man’s Murder — “Kent Carter, a prominent racial-justice leader in Northern Virginia, was one of three people killed over the weekend in the Turks and Caicos Islands amid a string of violent attacks that have shaken this British territory in the Caribbean… Carter’s girlfriend survived with minor injuries, according to Cantrell. Officials said they believe one of the attackers was later killed by police. Botting said Monday that the ambush was ‘carried out by armed gang members who act without conscience.'” [Washington Post]
