COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A Columbus man is walking free after a jury found him not guilty of all charges.

Thirty-three-year-old Jarod Ingram was found not guilty of malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, and possession of a knife during the commission of a crime.

According to authorities, they say Ingram stabbed his  28-year-old ex-wife, Ciara Ingram in her Cherokee Avenue home while the couple's children waited outside.

They believe the incident happened June 2, 2012. Her body was found by apartment managers conducting an inspection.

Jarod Ingram was believed to be the prime suspect by police.

The defense attorney for Jarod Ingram, Mike Reynolds, says the timeline in which the incident happened does not line up.

According to Reynolds, phone records remove Jarod Ingram from the scene during critical times. This was key evidence and foundation of Reynolds argument during the trial.

Jarod Ingram served 15 months before making bond.
