A jury acquitted Kewon Kelley of first-degree murder charges on Monday. Kelley’s is the first homicide trial acquittal in Suffolk County Superior Court this year.
Kelley, 29, of Plymouth, was charged with the shooting death of Rayshawn Few, a 27-year-old father who reportedly tried to diffuse an argument outside a party on Feb. 17, 2013. Few was shot in the head and collarbone and died at the scene.
The trial lasted about a week and a half. Jurors deliberated one full day before returning their verdict.
