A Charlotte man could spend nearly 8 years in prison after a jury found him guilty of voluntary manslaughter on Friday.

Derrick Huey, 57, was tried for first-degree murder during a jury trial that started on July 7, according to the district attorney’s office.

The jury found him guilty of the lesser-included charge of voluntary manslaughter in connection with the October 2011 shooting death of James Love, 49, officials said.

According to the DA’s office, Huey fatally shot Love during an altercation on Rogers Street in Charlotte.

Superior Court Judge Eic Levinson presided over the trial and Friday sentenced Huey to 73 to 92 months in prison.
