Conneely was killed just minutes from his home in Dorchester, Massachusetts. He was returning from an Irish festival. He had lived in the United States for 12 years where he worked as a construction worker and paid taxes like most white workers.
John Graham, 19, was charged in killing Conneely in a botched robbery attempt. Graham was 17 at the time of the murder.
The black teen was found not guilty today.
The jury did, however, find Graham guilty of a double shooting the same month in which the same gun was used to kill Conneely.
March 26, 2914.
