INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Dec. 9, 2015)– A jury found a man not guilty on all counts Wednesday in a May 2014 murder.

Max Levine was killed on May 24, 2014 in the Coke Lot in Speedway. That same day, Avory Johnson was taken into custody for the offense.  It was later discovered that several witnesses in the case were not kept separately from one another, and the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office declined to file charges in the case at that time.

Police continued to investigate by following up on leads and gathering additional information from witnesses. On August 20, 2014, detectives met again with the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office about the case. The prosecutor’s office determined that there was probable cause to formally charge Johnson with murder and carrying a handgun without a license.

On Wednesday, a jury found Johnson not guilty on both counts.
