Southaven man pleads guilty to manslaughter

HERNANDO, Miss. (AP) - A 20-year-old Southaven man will be sentenced April 17 after pleading guilty to the shooting death of his half brother.

Kevin Fleming on Wednesday pleaded guilty to manslaughter in DeSoto County Circuit Court.

He had previously been charged for murder in the death of 13-year-old Stanley Morgan, his half brother, and had been scheduled for trial later this month.

Prosecutors say Fleming shot Morgan in an apartment complex parking lot in Southaven. They say Fleming took Morgan to the hospital, where the younger man died.
