YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A verdict has been reached in the murder case against Jermaine Bunn, who acted as his own lawyer in the trial.

After the jury deliberated for two days, Bunn was acquitted of murder charges. The jury did convict him of tampering with evidence and a weapons charge.

Bunn was accused of shooting 30-year-old Michael Pete in April. Pete was found dead, lying along E. Evergreen Avenue. After the shooting, police said Bunn arrived at St. Elizabeth Hospital with a gunshot wound to the face.

Bunn faces up to six years in prison for the lesser charges, and he will be sentenced on Friday.
