A 23 year old East Chicago man was found not guilty of murder today  by a jury in the death of a 21 year old woman and not guilty of attempted murder of the woman's boyfriend. The Times reports Antonio Perkins was accused of following the couple, after an altercation at an East Chicago gas station in July of 2011, and firing at their vehicle, striking the woman in the head. According to the article, the defense contended the evidence in the case did not hold up, as cell phone records indicated the victim had already been hospitalized when Perkins was alleged to have been shooting at the vehicle.
