A Jackson man was convicted of manslaughter Thursday.
29 year old Johnny Brown was then sentenced to 20 years in prison as a habitual offender.
Brown was on trial for a 2004 shooting that resulted in the death of his former girlfriend, Violar Bracey.
He was convicted of murder in 2006 in connection to that same shooting.
However, the Mississippi Supreme Court threw out the conviction because of a trial judge's instructions to the jury.
