Saying he was too drunk to know what he was doing; the lawyers for Richard Lynne Breneman, 71, argued that he is only guilty of manslaughter, not murder. A Crook County District Court jury agreed with that argument and found Breneman guilty of manslaughter in the death of Voy Douglas Powell, 54, in November 2009. According to a published report, Breneman and Powell were both into a deep drinking session at their mobile home in the Easy Living Trailer Park when an argument broke out and Powell was shot. Crook County District Attorney Dana Vitolins said Breneman will most likely receive a 10 year sentence with time served.

This is the first murder trial in Crook County since 1979.
