The man accused of killing the St. Vincent Prime Minister\'s Press Secretary, Glen Jackson, has been acquitted of murder charges against him.

Francis Williams was reportedly charged, following the death of Mr. Jackson by a single gunshot to the back in March 2006.

Justice Bruce Lyle ruled that investigators had not followed the proper procedure, and that a confession obtained by the police from Williams was inadmissible.

Justice Lyle later advised the 12-member jury to return a not guilty verdict.
