Adrian Thomas Acquitted Of Killing Infant Son After Second Trial
A case that began 6 years ago has ended in an acquittal. The Times Union reports that jurors deliberated for about seven hours over two days in a Rensselaer County courtroom before acquitting Adrian Thomas yesterday of killing his infant son. Prosecutors argued that Thomas threw his 4-month-old son, Matthew Dante Thomas, onto a bed in frustration, causing trauma and death on September 23rd, 2008.
