LIMA, Ohio A veteran Lima police sergeant was acquitted Monday on charges he was negligent when he shot an unarmed woman to death and wounded her 1-year-old son. Joseph Chavalia, 52, was found innocent of negligent homicide and negligent assault, both misdemeanors, stemming from a Jan. 4 drug raid at Wilson s Third Street home in which Tarika Wilson, 26, and her son, Sincere, were shot. The jury deliberated about three hours.
