Pittman had been charged with murder for the death of Jimmy Harper in August 2011. Harper was on his way home from work when Pittman’s car hit his head on U.S. 68 in Sharpe. Pittman had admitted to consuming alcohol prior to the accident.
The jury returned a verdict of guilty of second degree manslaughter, wanton endangerment and DUI. Sentencing will be held on Tuesday in Marshall County Circuit Court.
