Court acquits man of intruder's murder

A Supreme Court jury has acquitted a 34-year-old Perth man of murdering an intruder at his industrial unit last year.

The jury deliberated for eight-and-a-half hours before finding Grant Davis Hodgson not guilty of murdering 39-year-old Dean Wilson at Seville Grove in March last year.

Mr Wilson died when an artery in his arm was severed during a confrontation with Mr Hodgson.

The jury also found Mr Hodgson not guilty of manslaughter.

He walked free from court a short time ago saying the verdict was a relief.
