Letcher County jury finds man guilty of manslaughter

A Letcher County jury finds 25-year-old Jonathan Anderson guilty of 2nd degree manslaughter.

He was originally charged with murder after hitting Gwendolyn Whitaker's vehicle and killing her on the Whitesburg by-pass at Stone Avenue last November.

Anderson and his defense admit he is guilty, but attorneys argue the prosecutor over-charged him for the crime.

They say Anderson is guilty of reckless homicide, not wanton murder.

We will have much more on this story later today on Mountain News.
