NEWARK - A Newark man charged in the murder of an IHOP manager in 2013 was found not guilty Thursday.

Edward Turner was accused of fatally shooting Papa Khaly Ndiaye as he tried to break up a fight outside the Bergen Street restaurant in March of 2013.

Turner was arrested about one year later and charged with the crime.

He was acquitted of murder, attempted murder, witness tampering and weapons offenses.

"We are very disappointed with the outcome in this tragic case but we respect the decision of the jury,” says Katherine Carter, a spokeswoman for the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office.

Turner was expected to be released from jail Thursday, according to his attorney.
