    PA - Beau Zabel, 23, fatally shot in Philly robbery, 15 June 2008

    Poor Beau Zabel. The 23 year old from Minnesota moved to Philadelphia and was shot dead. Shot in the neck on his way home from a late night of work at a Starbucks.

    Mr. Zabel was to teach this coming fall in the Philadelphia school system and attend Drexel University. This poor man and his poor family. Robbery seems to be the motive they said. Shoot a man dead for a few bucks.

    That is truly sad, Filly. Who knows what good he might have accomplished in his future. It's just not fair.

    It's not fair, TM. It's not. Poor guy was all ready to live his life. Going for his Master's degree. Probably all wide eyed at helping the youth in this city and he's shot dead after living here for six weeks.

    An arrest has finally been made in this case. The suspect is already serving a life sentence for killing his getaway driver from the night of the attack on Zabel.

    He may be eligible for the death penalty on this new indictment.

    A former friend and fellow inmate of accused killer Marcellus Jones told a Philadelphia jury Friday that while both were housed at Graterford Prison in 2009, Jones admitted killing teacher Beau Zabel...

    Friday marked the fourth day of testimony in the trial of Jones, 37, in the slaying of Zabel, a Drexel University teaching fellow who had been in the city just six weeks from Austin, Minn., when he was killed in a robbery that netted the shooter an iPod.

    In a verdict that stunned courtroom spectators, a Philadelphia jury on Wednesday acquitted a South Philadelphia man charged in the 2008 slaying of aspiring Minnesota teacher Beau Zabel in a robbery that netted an iPod.

    The Common Pleas Court jury of 10 women and 2 men deliberated three hours before acquitting Marcellus Jones of murder, conspiracy to commit robbery, robbery and two gun charges.
