A Boone County man charged with the death of another man has been convicted of voluntary manslaughter.
Brian King was charged in the stabbing death of Roy Gilliam, 23. On Friday, a jury handed down the conviction in Boone County Circuit Court.
Police said the incident that happened in February 2012 was the result of a love triangle. Officers said Gilliam discovered his girlfriend was with King, so he tracked the two down in the Jeffrey area. That's when the two got in a fight and Gilliam was killed. King claimed that he acted in self defense.
King's sentencing date will be set in early January, Prosecutor Keith Randolph said.
