YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Kevon Williams, accused in the death of David Jackson of Youngstown, accepted a plea deal Monday which will send him to prison.
The judge in the case found Williams guilty of involuntary manslaughter, among other charges, sentencing him to ten years in prison.
The trial started Monday in the Mahoning County Courthouse.
The Jackson’s skull was found in February 2013 by a dog in a remote area on the city’s east side.
Police later found his body in the woods, dismembered and decomposing.
A grand jury originally indicted Williams on charges of murder, abusing a corpse and felonious assault.
At the time of his disappearance, Jackson’s family said they hadn’t seen him since November 2012.
