Third jury finds man not guilty of stuffing wife's body in his trunk

CLEVELAND -- After a week of deliberations, jurors have found Jeffrey Krotine not guilty of the murder of his wife.

Krotine told Target 3, living through two hung juries and an acquittal has been like “going through Vietnam all over again.”



The prosecution blames seesaw testimony from the coroner’s office for the verdict.



The defense says the state withheld information that would have cleared his client in the first trial.



Two alternate jurors say Krotine is guilty.

“I thought the worst case would have been another hung jury - certainly the best case would have been a conviction,” said Dan Nitowsky, an alternate juror.



After 45 minutes of discussion with jurors, Judge Timothy McGinty said 10 of the 12 on the panel felt in their heart Krotine was guilty, but the prosecution failed to meet its burden of proof.
