Decatur man found guilty of manslaughter

February 10, 2005

Bainbridge- A Decatur County man was convicted this week of voluntary manslaughter for killing a man with a table leg.

Last August, Hubert Linzey got into an argument during a card game with Jerome Sasser, also of Decatur County.

Linzey threatened Sasser with the table leg, Linzey pulled out a knife and cut Linzey in the face, then Linzey took the table leg and beat Sasser to death.

Linzey will spend five years in state prison.
