      Verdict reached in Ishpeming murder trial

      After a several day trial, the jury found Jack Carpenter, 52, guilty of voluntary manslaughter.

      Carpenter was found guilty on Wednesday afternoon in the death of 29-year-old David Meyer. Meyer was killed in June of 2012 after being shot by Carpenter.

      The jury deliberated the case for eight hours, finally finding Carpenter guilty on charges of voluntary manslaughter and felony possession of a firearm. The charge of voluntary manslaughter carries a penalty of 15 years in prison.

      TV6's Beth Cefalu was in court at the time the verdict was announced, and will have reaction from the courtroom on the TV6 Early News at 6 p.m.
