Manslaughter Second Degree Conviction


After three days of trial, Donald Roark was convicted of manslaughter second degree in the shooting death of Corenz White on January 3, 2016. Roark had gone to an apartment complex off of Red Mile Road with  White and the White’s brother in the late hours of January 2, 2016. During a confrontation after a party that evening, Roark shot Corenz White in the chest resulting in his death.
