Manslaughter-for-Hire Goes Bad

There's really nothing good that can happen when drugs, guns and sex come together.

The article's best line: "The victim, Anthony "Tone" Chastain, 35, had scored a lucrative drug deal in Dayton before he was shot..."

It's funny to see that in the newspaper.

Also, I'm not a lawyer, but isn't this a typical example of when the charge should be manslaughter and not murder? Or is it even more typical to have an overzealous prosecutor (and inadequate public defender to boot)?
