Franklin Co. man tried for murder convicted of manslaughter

Posted: Updated:

A Franklin County jury convicted a Red Bay man of manslaughter for a shooting that happened in 2011.

51-year-old Hershel Graham was charged with the murder of David Andrasik. The jury did not convict him of murder, instead opting for the lesser charge of manslaughter.

Graham testified Friday, telling jurors he begged and pleaded with Andrasik to get off his property.

Graham testified that Andrasik attacked him over an issue with a dog.

Prosecutors said Graham never called police, or tried to defuse the argument before pulling his gun.

A sentencing date has not been set. Graham remains out of jail on bond.
