A photo provided by the Fresno Police Department, date not known, shows Willie Gray. A central California burglary defendant who won his freedom because of a jury's mistake lost his life a few hours later when he was stabbed to death in a fight. The jury in the trial of Bobby Lee Pearson, 37, mistakenly signed a not-guilty form Wednesday, June 11, 2014, and the flabbergasted judge said he had no choice but to order him to be released from jail because the verdict had already been put on the record. After being released from jail, Pearson went to the home of his sister to get some clothing and belongings got into a fight with his sister's boyfriend, 35-year-old Willie Gray. Gray was arrested and treated for injuries to his hands before being booked on suspicion of murder. (AP Photo/Fresno Police Department) less
