PINEVILLE, Mo. (AP) – A jury in southwest Missouri has found a 30-year-old man innocent in a 2013 stabbing death.

Boyd Marcum was acquitted Thursday of second-degree murder charges in the death of 29-year-old Kevin Anderson. Marcum was also found innocent of voluntary and involuntary manslaughter.

Officers found Anderson lying on a porch at a home in September 2013 bleeding from a chest wound.

Police said Marcum told authorities Anderson grabbed him by the throat during a dispute. Marcum said he couldn’t breathe, so he pulled his pocketknife out with his free hand and stabbed Anderson once.
