COLUMBUS – An Alabama man has been convicted of manslaughter in his second trial involving a 2008 shooting death at a bar in Caledonia.
James “Chuck” Newell was convicted in Lowndes County Circuit Court in the slaying of Adrian Boyette. Circuit Judge Lee Coleman set sentencing for Sept. 7.
Newell faces up to 20 years in prison.
Newell, of Vernon, Ala., had been convicted of manslaughter in 2009, but the Mississippi Supreme Court overturned the verdict and sent the case back for retrial.
