Guam - Less than a day into jury deliberations Isaac Kaipat has been found not guilty in the murder of Robert Blas. A jury cleared Kaipat of charges of negligent homicide, manslaughter and aggravated assault. The jury however did find him guilty of assault as a misdemeanor.

During the trial, Kaipat admitted to slapping the victim at the former Club 7 Deuce, however, his attorney Mike Nisperos argued the strike did not cause the blunt force trauma that was identified during the autopsy. Nisperos further told the court that law enforcement authorities don't know who is responsible because the investigation was not done properly.
