TEMPLE, TX (KXXV) - A Temple teen has been found not guilty of murder for the November 2012 shooting death of a man found in a Temple house.

Cedric Lilly was found not guilty of murder in 426th district court, for the shooting death of Michael Lamar Green. Jury selection began Monday in the Bell County trial of Lilly, who was 16 at the time of the crime, but was certified to stand trial as an adult in January 2013.

Police found Michael Lamar Green with multiple gunshot wounds in the front room of a house in the 400 block of S. 32nd St. in Temple, around 9:20 p.m. on November 9. Temple Fire and Rescue personnel were already performing CPR on Green, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police arrested Lilly in connection with the death of Green and he was held in the Juvenile Detention Center in Killeen, until he was transferred from the juvenile facility to the Bell County Jail in January 2013.
