William Hoehn Not Guilty Verdict
William Hoehn is acquitted of conspiracy to commit murder in the case of Savanna Greywind. Hoehn was accused of being a co-conspirator in the murder of Savanna Greywind in August of last year.
The jury deliberated for about 9 hours before deciding to acquit Hoehn of conspiracy to commit murder.
Prosecutors said Hoehn planned and helped his former girlfriend, Brooke Crews kill Savanna in August of last year.
However, the defense told the jury that Hoehn is only guilty of covering up the murder.
After working on this case for the past 13 months, the prosecution says this is a very disappointing end.
"This young beautiful woman no longer exist and the people who did this to her although one is serving a life sentence and one has plead guilty to some other things how do you ever vindicate that," Prosecutor Leah Viste Said.
Savanna Greywind's family was in the courtroom this afternoon, wearing red in her honor, but they declined to make any comment.
Although Hoehn looked relieved after his verdict, he is not walking free.
Hoehn has already pled guilty to conspiracy to commit kidnapping, as well as giving false information to police--which means he could spend the next 21 years in prison.
He'll be sentenced at a later date.
Hoehn's former girlfriend, Brooke Crews is already serving a life sentence in Savanna's gruesome killing.
