Spence walks

Not guilty is the verdict for Thunder Bay's Mervin Spence. A jury has acquitted him on a charge of assault causing bodily harm in the death of Scott James in December of 2007. Court was told James died after being thrown out of a Simpson Street bar by Spence. Spence was originally charged with manslaughter, but that was reduced and the jury has now delivered the not guilty verdict on the lesser charge.
