A Sydney man accused of drowning his severely disabled stepson in a bathtub has been found not guilty of murder at his retrial.
Charlie Younes, 45, pleaded not guilty to murdering Steven Copo-Horton, also known as Steven Copo, in October 2013 , a week after he broke up with the teenager's mother.
He said he discovered 18-year-old Steven, who couldn't walk or talk, in the bath about 2am and raised the alarm to those sleeping in the mother's new western Sydney home.
After a six-week trial, a NSW Supreme Court jury was discharged in April after failing to reach a verdict.
Mr Younes then faced a second trial, with the jury on Friday finding him not guilty of murder.
