Deputy Stephen Krendick has been found not guilty of the murder of Mark D. McCullaugh Jr.
The judge more-or-less blamed the death on the victim's hardening of the arteries. [LINK]
It was alleged that ...McCullaugh, who was shackled in a hogtied position, choked to death within 'minutes' of being sprayed with 'a large amount' of pepper spray, Sterbenz said. Using his autopsy photos, Sterbenz also pointed out 10 distinct marks on McCullaugh's back from what he said were taser stun-gun barbs. In Monday's opening statements, Kosko said Krendick used an entire 16-ounce can of pepper spray, shooting it into McCullaugh's cell through an open flap in the cell door while McCullaugh was naked and restrained.
