Man Found Not Guilty of Killing Daughter's Ex

Posted: Updated:

OMAHA (KPTM)-A jury has found an Omaha man not guilty of murdering his daughter's ex-boyfriend.

Sidney Andersen walked out of the Douglas County Courthouse a free man Friday afternoon.

Prosecutors say he shot and killed Randall Grimm at an area grocery store in February 2011.

Andersen's lawyer  said he shot Grimm in self-defense and claimed Grimm had made threats to his family and even beat his daughter.

Prosecutors say the jury found that the shooting was justified. They however believe the crime was pre-meditated since Andersen was armed with two guns and rubber gloved the night of the killing. Prosecutors also said that Andersen called investigators in Sarpy County leading up to the shooting. They told Andersen to let them handle the situation.
