Appeals Court Upholds Pittsburg County Man's Manslaughter Conviction

Posted: Updated:

The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has upheld the first-degree manslaughter conviction and 32 year sentence of a Pittsburg County man.

The court on Friday rejected an appeal by 30-year-old Lloyd Buck on the grounds of prosecutorial misconduct.

Buck was charged with first-degree murder in the 2014 beating death of 58-year-old Kenneth Flick of Quinton, but was convicted on the lesser manslaughter count.
