Pittsburgh man cleared of home invasion slaying


PITTSBURGH (AP) (AP)ong> - A Pittsburgh man has been released from jail after a second jury cleared him of all remaining charges in a fatal home invasion robbery on Easter 2009.

Robert Pace, 25, told reporters, "I'm good ... my innocence was proven today" as he was released from jail Wednesday. That's when a second Allegheny County jury acquitted him of second-degree murder and lesser charges in the death of 34-year-old Cecil Potter, of McKeesport.

Pace had previously been acquitted of first- and third-degree murder in October. He was retried this month because the first jury was deadlocked on the remaining counts.

Bryan Gilbert, of McKeesport, was only 15 when he was also charged in the fatal robbery.

Gilbert is serving 30 to 60 years in prison after previously pleading guilty to third-degree murder and other charges.
