A man is in jail, charged with killing another man and leaving his body in a ditch.

In April 2016, officers found the body of 22-year-old Ontario Manning face down in a shallow ditch near the intersection of Levi Road and Neely Road. The Shelby County Medical Examiner said he died from multiple gunshot wounds.

Investigators said evidence on the scene suggested that Manning was the victim of a robbery.

Witnesses identified Kevin Horsley as the man responsible for killing Manning and taking money and narcotics from him.

Horsley was arrested on May 23. He is charged with first-degree murder.
