  • Text size: + -

A Rochester man was acquitted of murder and robbery charges after the shooting death of an East High School freshman a year ago.

In the bench trial, acting State Supreme Court Justice Stephen Sirkin found Blake Alford, 23, not guilty of killing Donald Stevens.

The 15-year-old was found shot to death on Hudson Avenue near Warsaw Street in September of last year.

The teenager had been robbed of a gold chain around his neck.

This was Alford's third trial after the previous two were declared mistrials. ClientIP:,, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
