Dallas Acoff found guilty of 2nd degree murder


The man convicted of shooting and killing Lemroy Coleman in East Wheeling last October has been found guilty.

The room was emotional as the verdict was read. Dallas Acoff was found guilty of murder in the second degree.

The jury found Acoff guilty of killing Lemroy Coleman, but believes it was not premeditated.

Acoff was also found guilty of malicious assault in the second degree and guilty on three counts of wanton endangerment.

The murder charge holds up to 40 years in prison, malicious assault up to 5 years, and each of the 3 counts of wanton endangerment holds up to 5 years.

The prosecution commented saying they felt the verdict was fair and they are relieved the dangerous man has been taken off the streets. The defense declined to comment.

Acoff had 7 counts against him, but was only seen on 6 of those counts during this trial. He is also charged as a felon in possession and will go to trial separately on that charge.
