Man may avoid jail in teen killing

September 12, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A Knoxville teacher's husband who was charged with murder in the death of his wife's student lover was found guilty of a lesser crime, which could mean little or no time in prison.

Eric McLean, 33, told jurors that he accidentally shot 18-year-old Sean Powell on March 10, 2007. His lawyer described him as hopelessly in love with his unfaithful wife and powerless to stop her affair.

Jurors deliberated for more than 10 hours over two days before convicting him of reckless homicide. Sentencing was scheduled for Nov. 7.
