MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Nearly three years after being arrested and charged with the murder of his pregnant girlfriend, Timothy Stallworth walked out jail a free man.

Stallworth was released from jail Wednesday morning after a Montgomery jury only found him guilty on one count of criminally negligent homicide.

Prosecutors said they are disappointed with the verdict and had originally pushed for capital murder charges due to the death of both Kimberly Lewis and her unborn child. Lewis, four months into her pregnancy, was stabbed to death.

"We are very disappointed by this decision. We thought we had presented enough evidence that would include a more serious charge in this case considering both the killing of the woman and the unborn child," said John Kachelman with the Montgomery District Attorney's office. 

Criminally negligent homicide is a class A misdemeanor, the maximum penalty is one year in jail.

Stallworth was released due to time served.
