Syracuse teen acquitted of 2016 murder charge, found guilty of burglary, petit larceny
SYRACUSE, N.Y. —
A Syracuse teen who was charged in a January 2016 homicide case was acquitted by a jury Thursday evening, according to City Judge Mary Anne Doherty's office.
Farod Mosley was acquitted of three counts — second degree murder, strangulation in the second degree and criminal possession of a weapon. He had been accused of stabbing 18-year-old Jada Dame to death inside of her Boyden Street apartment on Jan. 4, 2016, which was the first Syracuse homicide of that year.
The jury also found Mosley guilty on charges of burglary and second-degree petit larceny, which stemmed from a separate incident on Jan. 4.
Mosley is scheduled to be sentenced on those charges on Sept. 22.
