Not-Guilty of 2nd Degree Murder Jury Verdict

In a three-day trial at Portsmouth Circuit Court, our client, a 31-year-old man from Portsmouth, was acquitted of second-degree murder charges related to the February 2020 death of his three-month-old son. The defense, Shemeka Hankins, argued that there was insufficient evidence tying our client to the injuries and criticized the investigation’s thoroughness, citing a lack of follow-up on the 911 call and failure to interview relevant individuals.
