NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - A jury found a man accused in a Domino's Pizza delivery driver's death not guilty of murder.

The jury found 16-year-old Shane Hughes not guilty of armed robbery and second-degree murder in the 2014 death of Chris Yeager.

The jury was hung on the second count of armed robbery. Hughes will have to face a re-trial on that charge.

Another teen, Rendell Brown, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in March and was sentenced to 40 years in prison for Yeager's death.
