Man acquitted of murder in killing of Alex Becker in St. Paul
One of three men charged with killing a St. Paul man last year in St. Paul has been acquitted.
According to court records, Becker was walking home from work when he was shot multiple times just feet away from his home. Investigators later arrested Travis and two others — Arteze Owen Kinerd and Detwan Cortell Allen — after reviewing surveillance footage in the area.
Travis previously had a jury trial scheduled to start on Jan. 8. However, in October, he opted to have a court trial and leave his fate up to the judge.
On Friday, Ramsey County Judge JaPaul Harris found him not guilty. He was then released from custody.
Kinerd and Allen are still charged in connection with the shooting. Allen’s trial started this week and is still ongoing while Kinerd isn’t scheduled to go on trial until February.
