A Buchanan County jury on Thursday found Camareo Goodwin not guilty of murder and robbery in the death of Brian Ullmer in August of 2011.
Goodwin was accused of orchestrating the robbery, and allegedly convinced three other people to carry it out.
But after a two day trial in which the defense presented no witnesses, a jury panel found him not guilty of felony murder and first-degree robbery.
Two other men have pleaded guilty in the case and testified against Goodwin. Two more men await trial in the case.
