CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A man charged with first-degree murder in Linn County has been found guilty of a lesser charge, involuntary manslaughter.

The Gazette reports that 32-year-old Donald Harris was acquitted of two other charges Friday: robbery and going armed with intent. The online court records don’t list a sentencing date.

He’d been charged after the Nov. 12, 2017, slaying of 40-year-old Tarrance Newman in Cedar Rapids. Harris has maintained that another man shot Newman.
