Jury finds man guilty of manslaughter in stabbing death

YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) — A jury in Yakima has found a 21-year-old man guilty of first-degree manslaughter in the death of a 55-year-old handyman in 2018. Jurors acquitted Anthony Gregory Mallory of second-degree murder, but found him guilty of the lesser charge, manslaughter. It was the second trial for Mallory, after his first trial ended in a mistrial due to juror misconduct after a juror visited the crime scene and discussed the visit with other jurors during deliberations. That’s a violation of court orders. Mallory’s attorney said he was disappointed that the jury convicted him, but was grateful it was not on the murder charge.
