STAMFORD, Conn. -- A Stamford Superior Court judge ruled a local man was acting in self defense when he fatally stabbed a 16-year-old who was threatening to beat him with a brick, according to TheHour.com.
Judge Richard Comerford ruled that Rayon Hines, 35, was not guilty because he was justified in his actions when he stabbed Romario Marchant after a soccer match at Michael F. Lione Park in 2011, TheHour.com reported.
Hines had been charged with first-degree manslaughter.
