Plaquemine man convicted of manslaughter in 2008 slaying

An Iberville Parish jury convicted a Plaquemine man on charges of manslaughter, attempted manslaughter and gun possession, District Attorney Ricky Ward said.

Isiah “Icky” Lee, 36, 58710 Iron Farm Road, was found guilty Aug. 9 after a four-day trial in 18th Judicial District Court, Ward said in a news release Monday.

Lee was arrested in October 2008 in connection with the fatal shooting of Shantley Pinkney, 58335 Homestead Drive, and the serious wounding of another Plaquemine man.

Lee’s sentencing hearing was set for Sept. 26, Ward said.

Lee could face up to 40 years in prison on his manslaughter conviction and an additional 20 years on his attempted manslaughter conviction, Ward said.
