STATESBORO, Ga. (WTOC) - A jury has found defendant Marc Wilson guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the murder trial of Haley Hutcheson.
Wilson was originally charged with murder and aggravated assault for shooting at a moving truck in June of 2020, killing 17-year-old Hutcheson. She was riding in the back seat of a pickup truck on Statesboro’s bypass in the middle of the night.
Involuntary manslaughter was a lesser charge that was added during jury instruction on Monday. Wilson was found not guilty on the murder and aggravated assault charges.
Prosecutors argued Wilson overreacted to the truck traveling next to him and the teens inside. Defense attorneys said he was protecting himself and the young woman riding with him.
