A Knoxville man who was found not guilty of murdering his mother is still liable for her death. A Marion County Judge Monday (2/24) refused to vacate a 2018 civil judgement against Jason Carter. Carter was suspected in the June 2015 death of Shirley Carter. He was found not guilty in a criminal trial last year, but in 2018 a Marion County jury convicted Carter in a civil suit for wrongful death. Carter has been ordered to pay $10 million to Shirley Carter’s estate.
