A Salina man is guilty of killing another man in a dispute over a stolen go-kart.

A Saline County jury found Kyle A. Nelson guilty Friday of voluntary manslaughter in the July 31 killing of 37-year-old Jeffrey B. Powell.

The Salina Journal reports Nelson was charged with second-degree murder, but jurors were allowed to consider voluntary or involuntary manslaughter verdicts.
Sentencing is scheduled for March 25.
Nelson testified during the trial that he shot Powell in self-defense during an argument over the go-kart, which had been stolen from Nelson's children.
However, a witness who was in the car with the two men testified that Powell was not threatening Nelson before the shooting.
