OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Jurors have found an Omaha man guilty of charges related to the death of another man in southwest Omaha last summer.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2aQZGiX ) jurors deliberated about four hours Tuesday and then found 25-year-old Carl Heng guilty in the death of Robert Lane in August 2015.

Heng acknowledged shooting the 25-year-old Lane but argued it was in self-defense.

Lane wasn’t armed and prosecutors say he wasn’t posing a threat the Heng.

Prosecutors sought a conviction for second-degree murder, but jurors found Heng guilty of manslaughter.

He will be sentenced in September.
