POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) - A southeast Idaho man has been found guilty of voluntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of a bouncer who was severely beaten outside a Pocatello tavern.

The Bannock County jury did not convict Martin Ish, of Fort Hall, of second-degree murder. Ish was arrested in 2015 and charged in the beating death of Eugene Lorne Red Elk. The part-time bouncer died of his injuries in the hospital three days later.

The Idaho State Journal (https://bit.ly/2oVDLf7) reports that the jury on Friday also found Ish committed two prior felony drug convictions and that the judge should consider those convictions during sentencing.
