Wilfredo Rodriguez-Claudio, accused killer, acquitted of most serious charges
A man charged with first and third degree murder in Reading has been acquitted of nearly all charges against him.
A judge acquitted Wilfredo Rodriguez-Claudio of the murder charges.
Rodriguez-Claudio was on trial for the shooting deaths of Efrain Lopez Collazo and Geovanie Collazo Rosa.
The two men were killed and a third person was hurt when shots rang out in the 300 block of Pear Street in January of last year.
A jury acquitted Rodriguez-Claudio on the remaining charges, except for possessing a firearm.
Another man charged in the deadly shooting, Juan Carlos-Claudio, is due in court next week.
