Mest singer "won't be charged"

After a lot of coverage which - to a greater or lesser extent suggested he was guilty of murder - Anthony Lovato of Mest is not being charged in connection with the death of another man:

There was insufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the killing was not a justified use of force in self-defense," said Jane Robison, a district attorney's office spokeswoman.

Not, perhaps, the most generous clearing of a person's name in American legal history, but enough to keep Lovato on the "until proven guilty" side of the law.
