Acquittal in 20-Year-Old Case

In Boston, a minister charged with killing his girlfriend 20 years ago was acquitted by a jury. Meanwhile, in California, charges in a 1980 murder were dismissed; a judge ruled that the death of witnesses and loss of files made it unfair to refile charges in 2004 after declining to prosecute in 1982.
