EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- A jury has found Army Captain Clevy Muchette Nelson not guilty of murder in the death of her boyfriend.

According to court documents, she was acquitted on the charges of murder, manslaughter, and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon against a family or household member.

Nelson was first arrested in October 2020 after the death of Malcolm Perry, an army officer at Fort Bliss. Perry was killed in a car crash, but police alleged another driver purposely hit Perry's car.
