Doneghy Denied New Trial for Manslaughter

Aug 11, 2011

A judge on Wednesday refused to grant a new trial for the man convicted of second-degree manslaughter in the hit-and-run death of Lexington police officer Bryan J. Durman. In seeking a new trial, an attorney for Glenn Doneghy contended jurors were unlawfully allowed to walk freely around downtown Lexington during a lunch break after deliberations had begun, according to court records. Doneghy was charged with murder, but the jury found him guilty of manslaughter, a lesser crime, and other charges.
