BENTON, Mo. -- A judge has found a 20-year-old southeast Missouri girl not guilty of killing another teenager by hitting her with a truck in 2010. Scott County officials said Brianna Branson of Miner, Mo., was found not guilty Wednesday on all three counts in the death of 18-year-old Kendra Gray in July 2010 in Sikeston. Branson was charged with second-degree murder, armed criminal action and second-degree assault. Prosecutors alleged Branson hit and killed Gray with a pickup truck after the two fought at an underage drinking party in Sikeston. The two reportedly had been feuding for months.
