HARRISBURG, AR (KAIT) – A Region 8 man originally charged with murder was found guilty of manslaughter.

According to Poinsett County Prosecutors, a jury found Timothy Sanchez guilty manslaughter in the beating death of 43-year-old Charles Kemp.

Sanchez was arrested June 30, 2011 after Kemp was found dead from a head injury in a Trumann home. Police responded to a fight call at that address.

Sanchez says he was acting in self-defense.

Prosecutors say Sanchez tried to hide from police, and hid blood soaked clothes at his mother's home.
