HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - A judge has set bond at $750,000 for a 60-year-old Hattiesburg man charged with manslaughter in a shooting death over the weekend.

The Hattiesburg American reports (https://hatne.ws/1pc3aQ6 ) Jerry Evans made his first appearance in Hattiesburg Municipal Court Monday, where Judge Jerry Evans set bond.

Police say Evans turned himself in after 35-year-old Carlos Yancey, of Hattiesburg, was shot and killed late Friday night during an incident described by police as “a large fight.”

Evans was arrested early Saturday. Monday, he officially was charged with manslaughter, defined as homicide without malice. The charge carries a jail sentence of up to 20 years.

It was unclear whether he has an attorney.
