Las Cruces police had accused James Bogart of killing his housemate, Jeremy Hernandez in March 2008.

Bogart who is wheelchair-bound, had been living with Hernandez and his wife. He claimed he was defending the woman during an argument between the couple.

The judge declared a mistrial in December after a jury couldn't decide on a verdict. They did find him guilty of tampering with evidence. That verdict stands, but this latest jury found him not guilty of murder.
