Manitoba Man Convicted Of Manslaughter Again

2nd Manslaughter Conviction

WINNIPEG - A Manitoba man who did time for manslaughter has been convicted of that crime again.

Rodney Williams was charged with second degree murder in the June 2019 stabbing death of 51 year old Robert Donaldson.

However, the judge in the case said she accepted the testimony of a forensic psychiatrist who said Williams was likely suffering from a meth-induced psychosis at the time of the crime.

So he's been convicted of manslaughter instead.

A decade earlier, Williams was sentenced to 18 years in prison after pleading guilty to manslaughter for stabbing a man to death.

He was granted statutory release in 2017.
